01-Jan-2006 -- After spending the first day of the new year touring Petrified Forest National Park, we took a small detour on our way back to our hotel in Winslow to visit this convenient confluence. I followed the same route as described in other visits: Sun Valley Road to Pima Road and past a number of homesites. At some point a bit south of the confluence the road split, with the main road going north and now called Sheri Road. It looked good and we drove up to the 35th parallel, at which point I parked. Beth, using better judgement than me, decided to skip this one, due to a slightly sprained ankle from an earlier hike we took at PFNP and the heavy, brisk, cold wind that was blowing. I went ahead and jog-walked to the confluence, located about 0.2 miles east of our position. The land is sandy, covered in a low grass. The immediate area is quite uninteresting, but the overall region is one of eroded sandstone bluffs, badlands and colorful vistas; the famed Painted Desert is about 15 miles east. I kept the visit short and returned to our truck, a total of about 10 minutes in the field. The next day we visited the next confluence over, 35N-111W.
