01-Jan-2001 -- My brother, dad, and I had scouted out this confluence point last summer. The road that was closest to the confluence point on the map turned out to be very old, private, and currently blocked off. After a bit of wandering we made it to another road which passed within a mile or so. Due to time constraints (and my dad's lack of enthusiasm) we decided to save the actual hike and visit for later.

That later came on New Year's Day. We had gone to my grandma's for the weekend and the confluence point was only a few miles out of the way on the drive back to my parents'. My brother, mom, and I drove about six miles north from Bliss, Idaho on Hill City Road where we turned left. From there it was not too far until the road got as close as it does to the confluence point. We were able to get a little bit closer by driving on a dirt road which was not on my map. From there it was about 1.3 miles to the confluence point.

While my mom waited in the car, my brother, my dog and I started the hike. It was a little cold out, but not bad. Making our way through the sage brush was pretty easy and it only took us about 25 minutes to get to our destination. As you can see in the pictures, visibility was not stellar, but I was happy that it wasn't any worse.
