(visited by Dennis Brown)

This confluence has been visited four times by 11 people, with three of the parties thinking they were first! It is interesting to note the inaccuracy of each confluence visit, even though they all had GPS's.

14-Apr-1999 -- While on a combination business and pleasure trip in the Long Beach, California area last April, I finally made it to this confluence after making two attempts during the previous two days. I expected this confluence to be in somewhat of an urban setting, but was pleasantly surprised at where I ended up, just east of Whittier in a very hilly area with roads that were so winding it made me dizzy to drive them. The area looked liked a great place to live if you didn't have concerns about your home sliding off the hillside during a heavy rain. The home that impressed me the most is in picture #2, with the lavender colored flowers covering the hillside. The pictures don't come close to depicting just how steep some of these hillsides really are. In fact, the actual confluence sits in one of the steepest areas around, less than 200 feet north from the edge of Athel Drive.
