08-Apr-2001 -- The first approach of this confluence was from the north. On the Topo map, a road of some sort ran along the top of Manbone Ridge, just above the convergence point. That road was blocked by a gate off of TN. Hwy. 69. So I turned around and went to Al. Hwy. 1 to approach from the valley. I was fortunate to get permission to cross the cow field to get closer to the creek that also runs through the valley parallel to the ridge. I forded the creek, (Picture #2) which was calf deep, just northeast of the confluence point. Heading southwest, I came across the 35°N reading and turn west to proceed up a 200-ft high ridge. After performing my impressions of a Billy goat, I finely made my way to the confluence point (Pictures #3 & #4). This is a very steep climb from the creek bed as you can tell in Picture #5. In the process of making this climb, I lost a digital cell phone. This required yet another climb back to the confluence to see if I could locate it. I was not successful in locating this item. If you find it, it will work, but only to call 911.
