#1: The confluence point lies on a rocky, sparsely-vegetated hillside

(visited by Ross Finlayson)

20-Sep-2010 -- I hadn't originally planned to visit this confluence point, but I had a few hours to spend before I met some friends to go mountain biking at nearby Red Canyon. I decided to drive the scenic loop formed by US Highway 89, and Utah Highways 62, 22, and 12. Shortly after passing through the tiny town of Antimony (presumably named after the chemical element of the same name), I found a narrow, rocky road at [37.99408,-111.98615] with a barbed-wire gate.

The road passes 0.4 miles from the confluence point, leading to an easy hike along gently rolling hills. The land here is mostly grassland, but with several tree stumps visible, presumably because the land was cleared for grazing and/or fire control. The confluence point itself lies on a south-facing slope. A rock cairn left by a previous visitor marks the point. (Grumble... Please, everybody, don't mark confluence points with cairns; leave them the way they are!)

Coordinator's Note: Ross is correct: The Confluence project strongly discourages leaving any kind of permanent marker.
