28-Aug-2006 -- The location of this confluence point is rather interesting - it lies close to the south bank of the Siuslaw River, near Florence, Oregon. From Florence, I drove east along highway 126 (towards Eugene) as it ran along the north bank of the river, and then crossed over the river at the small town of Mapleton. From Mapleton, I took Sweet Creek Road, and then Bernhardt Creek Road (aka. County Road 5034) westward, back along the south bank of the river. A locked gate prevented me from driving closer than about 1/3 mile from the confluence point; I hiked the rest of the way.
The road passes just 100 feet or so from the confluence point, which lies up a steep, heavily vegetated bank to the south. Scrambling up this bank, I was able to get about 20 feet (+/- GPS error) from the point. Getting 'all zeros' here will be very difficult, because of the steepness of the bank.
