#1: The confluence point, on a rocky hillside, is now marked by a 'geocache' box

(visited by Ross Finlayson)

16-Apr-2010 -- In December 1999 (in the Selective Availability era) I made the first successful visit to this confluence point. Now, more than 10 years later, I decided to make a return visit, both to get "all zeros", and also to see how the area had changed.

In 1999 a large area in front of the hill was being cleared for a subdivision; shortly afterwards, the subdivision was completed, and homes now reach the base of the hill on which the confluence point lies. Fortunately urban sprawl will never swallow up the confluence point itself, as it lies on a sleep hillside within BLM land (the "Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area"). (Another change since 1999 is that the confluence point is now marked by a steel 'geocache' box, inside a rock cairn.)

To reach the confluence point, drive to the end of East Mission Avenue in Henderson. The confluence point lies 0.17 miles away.
