03-May-2007 -- We decided to pass the Confluence 26N 48E during our journey on Wednesday, 3 May 2007. The nearest town to it is Dahw village and it is 50 km from it. This Confluence is in a stony, sandy land called al-Ṣulb. Near it in the South is the old caravans road which is called "al-Jawdiyy", this road linked al-Aḥsā' and al-Dammām to al-Riyāḍ in the past.

al-Dahnā' sands are to the West of this Confluence. There are many al-Ramth plants in this area and also al-Ḍabb lizards.


قررنا المرور بالملتقى ٢٦/٤٨ أثناﺀ رحلتنا يوم الأربعاﺀ ٣/٥/٢٠٠٧م وأقرب بلدة له هي قرية دهو، وتبعد عنه ٥٠ كلم، ويقع بارض حصوية رملية تسمى الصلب، و يمر بالقرب منه من جهة الجنوب طريق القوافل القديم المسمى «الجودي» وهذا الطريق يربط الأحساﺀ والدمام بالرياض قديماً. ׳

ويقع بالقرب منه من جهة الغرب رمال الدهناﺀ، ويكثر نبات الرمث بهذه المنطقة، ويكثر بها حيوان الضب. ׳
