(visited by Ross Finlayson)

11-Jul-2021 -- I had visited this point once before, in April 2010, but - while driving from Flagstaff, Arizona to Durango, Colorado - decided to revisit it, to get a ‘drone’s-eye’ view of the point. I’m glad that I decided to revisit this point, because this time I got to see the spectacular Coal Mine Canyon - to the northeast of the point - that I had somehow managed to miss during my previous visit.

As before, I reached the point by taking highway 264 South of Tuba City, then turning left onto the dirt road at [35.9898,-111.00073]. I followed this road as it dropped below a small mesa (“Blue Point”). During my last visit, I parked 0.4 miles from the point, and hiked the rest of the way. This time, however, I discovered a turnoff (a doubletrack dirt road) at [36.00172,-110.99216] that took me even closer. I parked (next to an overlook over Coal Mine Canyon) at [36.00193,-110.99800] - 0.17 miles northeast of the point - and hiked the rest of the way. (I was pleased that my hike was so short, because the temperature at the time was 102F (39C)!)

The point looked just the same as it did 11 years ago, except that this time it looked even drier and more desolate.

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