22-Sep-2002 -- Both previous visitors mentioned difficulty in locating the correct approach road to this confluence. There are a myriad of "roads" on the map as well as some not on the map and we too had some initial difficulty finding the correct road as we headed south from NV 379. While it appeared to be only two tire tracks in the desert, it actually wasn't that bad. We were able to drive right to the confluence. As you can see in photo #5 we held the GPSR right against Emma (my Explorer) for the "all zeros" photo. It was interesting to note that G. Horn’s cairn was about 12 feet from our zero point, certainly within the 14 foot EPE range of our reading. The setting as can be seen from the photos in all directions is the typical desert sand and sage. We took a different return route to NV 379 since our next stop was a geodashing dashpoint on the other side of the ridge to the east. That proved to be more challenging and required 4WD maneuvering through and around washed out sections of road.
