24-Mar-2012 -- On a road trip around Louisiana, I decided to stay at the Enduro campgrounds in Kisatchie National Forest. However, as I approached Enduro with about an hour of daylight left, I noticed that the campground access road was locked. I contemplated this for a moment and decided to head over to the confluence point while I thought about what to do.
The confluence point is in a piney forest very similar to my trip to 31N 89W in 2008. The zero point is about 10 m east of the dirt road I took pictures from. About 50 m south of the confluence point I noticed a clearing and a ring of stones that indicated others had used that spot as a campsite previously. It seemed good enough for me, so I set up my tent there and spent the next 30 minutes or so reading my book with the remaining sunlight.
At about 9 pm, some rowdy locals drove by on that dirt road and shouted a few innocuous teases ("Oh looky here! We got ourselves a camper!") in my direction. Other than that, the night passed without incident.
This was the first time I had slept at a confluence point. It was also my first visit to one in more than a year.
