#1: 22S 132E confluence 5m ahead between shrub and upturned tree root

(visited by Luc English)

11-May-2006 -- On the morning of the 11th May 2006 I approached the confluence from the west along a seldom used cattle station track, during a reconnaissance trip in advance of some exploration drilling in the area.

After crossing the dry Cockatoo Creek approximately 8km north of the confluence I followed another track southwards along the west bank of the creek to 18 Mile Bore, where I took an eastward-bearing track that passes within 2.95km of the confluence. From that point I decided to walk the rest of the way after partaking in a quick lunch. The thick mulga scrub that lined the edge of the road turned out to be less than 100m thick.

The country between there and the confluence was a mixture of open spinifex-covered sand and thin woodland. Many of the trees in this area were dead; evidence that a bush fire had passed through within the last few years. However the grass was fully recovered and chest-high bushes that will eventually replace the trees were already well established.

I reached the confluence at about 13:00 took the pictures and headed back to work.
