(visited by Cooper Atkinson and Dave Atkinson)

03-Jun-2000 -- It was a slow Saturday, so my son Cooper and I decided to do some backroad exploring in the mountains east of town. Just east of the Snake River plain in Idaho is an extensive area of mountains and rangeland with very little habitation. This area has a multitude of dirt roads criss-crossing the land. We spent about 30 miles on dirt roads approaching this confluence from the north. On the way, we saw cattle grazing and an abundance of wildlife, including a moose that galloped across the road about 25 yards in front of us as we drove. The confluence is in the middle of sagebrush covered rangeland, about a quarter mile off the dirt thoroughfare. An easy hike over fairly flat terrain (avoiding the gopher and badger holes) brought us to the confluence point. It was reasonably late in the day, making the picture taking a challenge with the lower sun angle.
