(visited by Ross Finlayson)

28-Sep-2021 -- While on my way back towards California from central Utah, I made a short detour to revisit this easy Degree Confluence Point that I had previously visited more than 11 years earlier. The point is exactly the same as I remembered it: in a flat expanse of sagebrush, just 400 feet from a paved highway (Utah State Highway 130). (Once again, it's clear that sagebrush owns the western U.S.)

Last time I approached the point from the south, but this time I approached from the east, so I got to pass through the Parowan Gap, and photograph the ancient petroglyphs there.

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