23-May-2004 -- Comenzamos nuestra aventura el 9 de abril del 2004, la cual no fue completada sino hasta el 23 de mayo del 2004, debido a que las fotos tomadas al gps no fueron nitidas, asi que nos dio la oportunidad de volver a este sitio y finalmente completar nuestra mision.

Esta confluencia se ubica cerca de una pequeña poblacion, conocida como Alamo de Ojos Azules, a 175 kms. aprox. desde la cd. de Chihuahua, con direccion al poblado de Carichi, pasando por cd. Cuauhtemoc. En esta carretera podemos apreciar "Campos Menonitas", comunidades tipicas de esta region.

Es importante mencionar que en Ojos Azules conservan en su agricultura, tecnicas rusticas de arado, con excelentes resultados y ademas se dedican a la crianza del ganado vacuno.

A bordo de nuestro jeep, pudimos acercarnos a la confluencia a una distancia de 1.3 kms. y el resto del recorrido lo hicimos caminando, ya que está dentro de una propiedad privada, sin encontrar gente que nos permitiera el acceso con el vehiculo.

We started our adventure on April 9th, 2004 but did not completed it until May 23rd, 2004 since the first images of the GPS where not clear, this gave us the opportunity to go back and finish our mission.

This confluence is near a small town known as Alamo de Ojos Azules – “Blue eyes alamo” – located at some 175 kms of the city of Chihuahua in direction to the town of Carichi, passing through Ciudad Cuauhtémoc. In this highway we can se “Mennonite Groups”, typical communities of this region.

It is important to mention that in Ojos Azules they still use rustic agricultural techniques with excellent results and they grow fine cattle.

Aboard of our Jeep we where able to get within 1300 meters of the confluence, the rest was cover on foot inside a private property, where we found no one to let us go in with our vehicle.
