14-Jan-2001 -- We may have missed Rich Carlson by only hours at this confluence! Sonya and I attempted to get there by the northern approach on the 13th, when he succeeded, and put off our second attempt until the next day. This area seems to be on the boundary between the mesquite trees of West Texas and the live oaks of South Texas -- both are plentiful in Menard County. Some of each are evident in Photo #1-- the live oaks are the ones with leaves on. Photo #2 shows GPS proof, and #3 shows an astounding live oak just west of the old house Mr. Carlson photographed. It must have been fun to climb for the kids that grew up there!
