(visited by Ross Finlayson)

17-Aug-2017 -- This was my second visit to this beautiful Degree Confluence Point; my previous visit was in June 2014. For my previous visit, my drone’s camera/gimbal had broken, so I was forced instead to strap an old digital camera (without a gimbal) to my drone. This gave me a very low-quality video - unbefitting such a beautiful location. So I decided to return to this point to get a much better-quality aerial video.

Unlike last time, I did not park on Beartooth Road. Instead, I parked at the nearby parking lot. This allowed me to avoid any vertical descending/climbing, and also any fence crossing.

The vegetation at the confluence point had changed noticeably since June 2014. In the intervening three years, thistles had spread onto the point. (Being later in the Summer, the grass was also drier.)

Here is a remote-controlled aerial video of this confluence point.
