#1: Locked fence 1.24 miles south of the confluence

(visited by mtn-man (Greg))

25-Feb-2001 -- I have been by this confluence a few times as I have traveled on business. When I saw the location, I thought I would give it a try. On the aerial photos there are roads that go very close to the confluence point, so it seemed promising. When I arrived in the area, I found my target road that seemed to be the best way there. It was padlocked with FOUR padlocks. My GPS said that I was only 1.24 miles away, but it was around 5:30 PM. This area is a Georgia Pacific tree farm for pulpwood. I drove around the perimeter of the area only to find more locked gates and many GP timber signs. The trees all around the perimeter of the area had white marks painted on them to indicate the private property, as you can see in the photo of the trees by the road. I did not want to trespass, especially so late in the day on a Sunday. West of the confluence near another locked gate, I took a photo of my GPS to show that I had made the attempt, though unsuccessful. I will try to call the GP people in the area to see if we can hike to the area, or maybe they will allow us to drive through the gate to document and photograph the confluence. At least I was successful at N33 W86 earlier in the day.
