(visited by Ross Finlayson)

24-Sep-2010 -- I first visited this confluence point on January 1st, 2000 - as part of my "Great Millennial Confluence Hunt" during which I visited several confluence points in the US Southwest. More than 10 years later, I decided to revisit this point, to get "all zeroes", and to get better photos.

The confluence point is just as I remembered it: A flat, sagebrush infused plain, with several large gravel patches where nothing grows (except young, tiny cactus plants, most of which will probably not survive to adulthood). The confluence point lies on one of these gravel patches.
