(visited by Fred Mauerman)

15-Sep-2001 -- When I was young, my grandmother lived in the small town of Bluff, Utah, about 35 miles west of the "Four Corners". I spent many great summers exploring the area around her house. I had visited the "Four Corners" area before so I was aware of what the terrain was like. The 37N 109W confluence was a natural for me.

I was returning home from a week long vacation at Lake Powell and figured I would take the long way home.

My plan, from topo maps, was to park by the bridge on the San Juan River (photo #2) and then walk along an old road (photo #3) to the confluence. If that route wouldn't work my next plan was to walk in from the highway on the north, through a gravel pit. (photo #4) Notice Shiprock in the distance.

Unfortunately, the area is on the Ute Mountain Indian Reservation. It is fenced and posted with warning signs. (photo #5) I did not care to trespass so I changed my plan to return home to try to obtain the proper permission to visit this confluence.

It looks like I was a little too late. Dale Stahlecker got there first. I am glad to see that he visited the confluence without doing something illegal.

Congratulations Dale!
