(visited by Ross Finlayson)

18-Apr-2010 -- While driving from Page, Arizona to the Grand Canyon's South Rim, I decided to make a short detour to visit this confluence point. From highway 264 South of Tuba City, I turned left onto the dirt road at [38.98603,-111.00076].

I followed this road as it dropped below a small mesa, until it reached its closest point to the confluence: 0.4 miles away. An easy hike took me to the confluence point. (If I'd risked driving off-road, I probably could have driven all the way to the confluence point.)

The confluence point lies in soft, poor-quality soil, with little growing except thinly-spaced sagebrush. I feel sorry for any cattle that are grazing this land; it does not seem very hospitable. A fence runs North-South just to the West of the confluence point; this fence appears to mark the boundary between Navajo and Hopi Indian land. (The confluence point appears to be within the Hopi land.)
