(visited by Neal & Candi Weathers)

26-May-2001 -- This was our third confluence for the day but we waited for the film to be developed. This one is pretty easy to find, as it is on the Oregon-Nevada border about 15-16 total miles off Hwy 140. Hang a north at the border sign, travel about 2.5 miles on the dirt road, hang an east for about 11.5 miles and at the end of the road, walk the rest of the way in. Take water, food and plenty of fuel. The road is dirt all the way in and is overgrown and has a few rocks upthrust.

We saw a lot of wild horse sign on the way in and we also saw a herd of about 30 +/- critters on our way out, and as it was after dark, we did not get any photos of them, sorry.

The GPS read 42:00.000 N X 119:00.000 in the D:M.SSS mode and 41.99999 N X 119.00000 W all in WGS 84, so we were kinda close.

This is not a winter trip and I would be real careful for thunderstorms and rain the rest of the year, but the view is worth the trip.
