(visited by Scott Surgent)

01-Jan-2007 -- After visiting 32N-112W on the Tohono O'odham Nation, I drove north up some very isolated and unused highways, working my way home toward Phoenix. On the way was 33N-112W, which ironically enough, I had not visited even though it's closest to my home and with very easy road access and trivial navigation.

I parked at the corner of Palmer & Natt and Parker & White Roads, bypassed the large canal and walked a few hundred feet due south of the confluence. Once 112W was lined up I hopped the smaller irrigation ditch and walked out into the fallow field for the photos. There is nothing of interest to see here.

I celebrated with a few minutes at the Ak-Chin Casino, just a few miles away, where I somehow managed to gain a 20% return on my $10 investment. Then, on home.
