04-Jul-2008 -- I decided to celebrate a warm sunny US Independece Day by paying a return visit to my nearest degree confluence: [37,-122] in Santa Cruz's DeLaveaga Park. I had, of course, already visited this confluence several years ago, but that was before the current, more stringent photo requirements. (I had also failed to get 'all zeros' back then.) So I figured it was time for another visit.
A narrow trail - switchbacking wildly up the hillside - leads to a small grove of redwood trees that contains the confluence point. The grove includes a large, prominent stump - which I call "The Confluence Stump". If you stand on this stump, you can - with a bit of luck - get 'all zeros'. (This is a difficult confluence point for getting 'all zeros', because of the steep slope, and tree cover.)
