#1: Looking directly at confluence from 250 feet away

(visited by Dennis Brown)

13-Feb-1999 -- At the end of a two week business trip to Oregon and northern California, I successfully completed another confluence, just south of Eugene, Oregon and only about 1000 feet from exit 188A off of Interstate 5. I headed east on Route 58 for a few hundred feet to the first road that is heads off to the north. After crossing a very small bridge over a very small stream, there is a 90 degree left bend in the road. At that point the confluence is only about 250 feet from the edge of the road. This turned out to be the break I needed because I've never seen so many "No Trespassing" signs in front of so many yards in a rural setting such as this was. They created an atmosphere more foreboding than the cloudy skies that hung overhead every single day that I was in Oregon. Since I was within 300 feet I decided that it would be a lot safer to document my moment through the car window. The confluence was just beyond that very small, yet overgrown stream which ran past the edge of the mowed lawn (Photo #1).

Exactly one hour and fifteen minutes later I snapped a single picture of the next confluence to the north, at N45 W123. But I knew someone else had already completed that one so I moved on, headed for Portland, thinking "Maybe one more ..."
