(visited by Ross Finlayson)

03-Aug-2012 -- Driving from Vancouver to Kamloops on a warm and sunny Summer afternoon, I decided to tackle this easy-looking confluence point en route. I was surprised to see that it had not been visited in more than 10 years, because it was, indeed, easy to reach: Dirt roads take you just 60 metres west of the confluence point - close enough for a successful visit. A brief scramble up a gently-sloping hillside (that slopes upward towards the east) enabled me to get 'all zeros'.

Unfortunately, although this confluence point is easy to reach, it is also completely unremarkable, as it lies within a thinly-spaced pine forest. There is nothing to see - except trees and grass - in any direction. (Unlike the previous visitor, I didn't continue up to the top of the hill to look for a view.)
