27-Sep-2019 -- Having now visited hundreds of Degree Confluence Points, I find that many of them are able to be assigned to ‘archetypes’ - groups of very similar points that share many characteristics in common. One such archetype is “Flat Farm Field Bordered by Trees”; many points fit this description. Another archetype (common in the Western U.S.) is “Desert Plain with Sagebrush”. And another is “Steep Forested Slope”; I’ve visited several points (in North America, Australia, and New Zealand) that fit this description. Except sometimes for the type of tree, they all seem very much the same.
This is another point in the "Steep Forested Slope” archetype. I had visited it twice before (in 1999 and 2015), but decided to visit it again to get a ‘drone’s eye’ view of the point and the surrounding area. The point looks just the same as I remember from my previous visit in 2015; it lies on a steep, forested East-facing slope, with scattered granite outcroppings. Again, it was quite easy to reach - just a 1/4 mile hike from a turnoff off Dinkey Creek Road - so I remain surprised that it has not been visited by more people.
Here is a remote-controlled aerial video of this confluence point.
