Viene de 34°N 94°W.

Después de un buen descanso, parto del hotel a desayunar y llenar nuevamente el tanque de gasolina. El pronóstico del clima para el día de hoy es el mismo, suaves lluvias y temperaturas entre 1° y 3°C.

Esta confluencia esta muy cerca de unos 22 km al sur de Mt Pleasant. Tomo la carretera 271 hacia el Sur y al llegar a la población de Pittsburg (Texas) giro a la derecha en el Boulevard David Abemathy. Continúo por el Boulevard hasta la intercepción con la carretera 11, donde giro a la derecha. Empiezo a ir despacio, observado donde estaría la entrada a una pequeña trilla que se acerca bastante a la confluencia como pude observar en Google Earth.

Veo una casa en estado de abandono a la orilla de la carretera 11 y justo al lado de la trilla que buscaba. Estaciono el carro en la casa e inicio mi caminata en medio de una leve lluvia y una temperatura de 2°C, por la trilla llena de agua y barro, pero al final de la misma observo otra casa abandonada rodeaba de monte. Me voy abriendo paso entre los arbustos y encuentro que la confluencia se encuentra en el terreno de al lado, una hacienda en plena actividad con ganado. La mayor aproximación que logro es de 174 mts y acá tomo las fotos.

Regreso a la carretera 11 y entro a la propiedad que esta justo al Este de la casa abandonada, pensando que la misma se extiende hasta el area de la confluencia, pero luego de conversar con su dueño descubro que esa propiedad llega a pocos metros de la carretera y es la que esta mas al Este donde esta ubicada la confluencia. Me indica que el dueño de la misma se llama Norman Applegate, pero este se encuentra en su oficina en la población de Pittsburg (Texas) y en virtud de que yo tenía otras confluencias por visitar en el día de hoy y de que debía llegar a Fort Worth, decidí continuar mi camino.

El viaje continua en 32°N 96°W.

Comes from 34°N 94°W.

After a good rest, I check-out the hotel and had breakfast and fill the fuel tank up again. Weather forecast for the day is the same, mild rains and temperatures between 1° and 3° C.

This confluence is about 22 km south of Mt Pleasant. I take Highway 271 South and when I reached Pittsburg town (Texas), turn right into Boulevard David Abemathy. Continue by Boulevard until an interception where I turn right on Highway 11. I start to go slowly, watching where would be the entrance to a small trial that is quite close to the confluence as I could see in Google Earth.

I see an abandoned house along Highway 11 and just by the trial that I was looking for. I parked the car at home and began my walk through a mild rain and a temperature of 2° C, on a trial full of water and mud, but at the end I noted another abandoned house surrounded by bushes. I opening passage between the bushes and realize that confluence is located on the property beside, a plantation in full activity with livestock. The greater approximation accomplishment is 174 meters and here I took photos.

I return to the road 11 and go to the property is just to the East of the abandoned house, thinking that it extends to the area of the confluence, but after talking with his owner I discover that this property finish just few meters from the road and is the next one to East where is located the confluence. He tells me that the owner is Norman Applegate, but this one is at his office in the town of Pittsburg, (Texas) and because I had other confluences for visiting today and I should arrive to Fort Worth, I decided to continue on my path.

The journey continues in 32°N 96°W.
