(visited by Jack Frickey and Nicholas Scarlett)

14-Jul-2001 -- Most of Nevada, and especially central Nevada, is desert with mountain ranges separating wide desert valleys. This confluence is located in one of these wide desert valleys in the middle of nowhere. We were able to drive on a reasonably good desert dirt road to within 1.25 miles of the confluence. We walked the short distance from the car over flat sagebrush covered ground to the confluence point where we took pictures of the surrounding countryside and recorded our presence. As you can see from the pictures it is wide open spaces with the view pretty much the same whichever direction you choose to look.
