(visited by Ross Finlayson)

13-May-2021 -- From [43,-110], I drove 1.5 hours south, past the Green River, and the Fontenelle Reservoir, where the Green River is dammed. After crossing the river (south of the dam), I turned onto a dirt road at [41.98615,-110.00589], 1.0 mile from the point. This dirt road took me 0.59 miles from the point, where I parked and started my hike.

Like Shawn Fleming, in July 2018, I often found it difficult to navigate around the thick sagebrush that’s growing here. I have visited many Degree Confluence Points in the western US that lie in sagebrush, but usually, it is thinly spaced, and easy to walk around. The sagebrush here, however, is unusually thick. Eventually, I was able to make my way to the Degree Confluence Point. Several oil fracking facilities (I think) are visible to the North,

Here is a remote-controlled aerial video of this confluence point.
