#1: this was the tree that the GPS was sitting in - the spot of the confluence

(visited by Mike Martin)

21-Aug-2005 -- I lived in Porterville for 13 years, and even though I knew the confluence was nearby, I didn't visit it until I had been away and had come back to visit friends. Well, I didn't have GPS in 1998 when I moved away, either, that's a big reason, too.

So, as I was leaving town that weekend, I figured it was time to visit the confluence, so I drove to the site, and found it without difficulty. This has to be the easiest confluence I will ever find, because it's right along the road.

The problem was that in order to get a perfect confluence, I had to literally put my GPS in the tree. You'll see a whole bunch of leaves in the upper left corner of the GPS photo. That's the tree.

But the good news...I'm hooked.
