#1: Looking west along Oak Canyon Drive at Laurie and Mike

(visited by Laurie L. Edgerton, Jason M. Sullivan and B. Mike Muto)

This confluence has been visited four times by 11 people, with three of the parties thinking they were first! It is interesting to note the inaccuracy of each confluence visit, even though they all had GPS's.

06-Aug-1999 -- After having a short vacation in Michigan and forgetting my GPS, I vowed to remedy the oversight by checking out any local, unvisited confluences when I went to visit my buddy Mike in Los Angeles. Imagine my surprise to find one ripe for the picking, and right in the middle of L.A.!

Nestled in a little mountian neighborhood just west of Hacienda Heights was the spot. A quick 40 minute trip from Pasedina brought us well within the limit, however, the lack of a macro lens on the crappy disposable camera prohibits full verification. No hiking, camping, or picnicing was required of the intrepid explorers.

This begs the question: in a city of millions of people, why was this juicy bit of low hanging confluence fruit overlooked?
