(visited by Megbil al-Shammary)

22-Dec-2006 -- My eldest sister called me to tell me that my father was sick on Thursday, 20 December 2006, so I travelled from Dammām in a hurry to visit my father in Ḥā'il city; I arrived on Friday early morning, my father was OK.

Since the confluence 26N 41E was near to us, I decided to visit it on Saturday, 22 December 2006. I travelled from our home at 7:00 a.m. to Maraġān town on the Madīna highway for 175 km from Ḥā'il, and then I turned left to this point.

I arrived there after about 2 hours, this point is located 2 km east of al-Ma`arraš town. At the point I found a female shepherd with her sheep and goats, that's why I faced a problem to stay for long. I took some shots then I went back to my father's house.

Next day I returned to Dammām, it was very short trip.
