03-Mar-2001 -- This was my first conflunce and when I told my dad about the project he wanted to go also. We left Riverton early Saturday morning and headed east on highway 136. When we got to Muskrat Road we started driving north. After driving for about 4.5 miles we came to an unnamed road that parallel some power lines. This is where we started driving east and see how close we could get to the confluence. When we crossed 108° W this was where we decided to stop and start walking. It was a walk of about 1.2 miles through the sagbrush. Occasionally we would check the GPS to make sure we weren't wandering off course. When we were close it looked like the confluence was on the slope of a hill. Since we had two GPSs with us we started from two different points on the hill. After several minutes of walking we both zeroed in on the confluence.
