(visited by Fred Mauerman)

15-Sep-2001 -- This was my second attempt at a confluence today. Earlier today, I was 69 miles south of here near the "Four Corners" region.

I still cannot decipher exactly what vegetation I am looking at when I check the satellite views of the area. I was sure that I was going to be in sagebrush looking for this confluence.

The area does have some sagebrush but is mostly pinyon forest. There are many old roads in the area. I get the impression that most of the roads were cut in by developers possibly planning on subdividing the property into smaller lots.

I drove to within a quarter of a mile of the confluence and while I was walking I actually crossed two more old roads. These are shown in photos #3 and #4.

I sometimes have a bad habit of watching my GPS a little too closely. As I was approaching the confluence, the reading on my GPS saying 443 feet to go, I looked up to pick my trail through the trees.

We must have seen each other at about the same time. My jaw dropped and my eyes opened wide. He turned to the left and within three strides was lost into the underbrush. That was my first sighting of a Mountain Lion in the wild. Needless to say I was at a heightened degree of awareness for the rest of the hike. I deeply regret that I was not able to get a picture to add to my album.

I am glad that I was able to make it to the confluence and take a couple of pictures of the trees (a panoramic view was not possible) but the confluence was not the highlight of my day.
