17-Jan-2004 -- This was my first attempt at a confluence visit. I enlisted the help of my father-in-law, Oleg Belyakov, who is visiting from Saint Petersburg, Russia. We parked about a mile from the confluence, and walked cross country. The GPS accuracy was 3 feet. The time of day was 1150 and the temperature was 71°. We were armed for snakes, but unfortunately didn't encounter any!! We were the only residents of this spot in the desert.
