20-Mar-2003 -- Taking a quick break from Colorado Rockies spring training, my first trip to a confluence seemed like a wonderful idea. With my good friends Paul and Heidi in compliant tow, 32 degrees north 111 degrees west became my first successful confluence visit. Located a quick 20 minutes south of Tucson on Interstate 19, we passed casinos, desert landscape, and plenty of troopers patrolling the highway. A visit to a map shop the day before provided the detailed topo map that we needed to easily locate the confluence. Under a blazing sun, ducking sharp cacti, and scrambling over rusted barb wire, we found the confluence using my new GPS and the USGS topo map. As an interesting aside, while we were visiting this hot, desert confluence, our homes back in Colorado were under 3 feet of snow from the largest spring storm to hit the Denver area in decades.
