(visited by Ross Finlayson)

06-Dec-2011 -- I was in Phoenix on a mountain biking vacation, but today it felt too cold (barely 50 degrees Fahrenheit) to go mountain biking, so I decided to go confluence hunting instead. I originally wasn't thrilled about visiting [33,-111], because it seemed remote and difficult, but upon reading Shawn Fleming's description, I realized that it was likely to be easier than I'd first guessed. And I was right; thanks to Shawn's excellent description, I was able to reach the confluence point quite easily, by hiking from the corral that he noted.

Desert confluence points are often boring - frequently consisting of nothing but clumps of sagebrush growing on dry sandy lake beds - but this confluence point is quite beautiful, with rolling hills, striking Saguaro cactus, and rugged mountains in the distance.
