29-Dec-1999 -- This beautiful confluence is located
in the middle of California's Mojave Desert, 6 miles from the tiny (just
one building: a
general store!) settlement of Goffs, on historic "Route 66".
Near Goffs, at [34.92945,-115.07203], a sandy 4WD road runs almost
directly to the confluence: 6.5 miles each way. Because my car's not
4WD, I parked at this point (see photo #5 below) and decided to ride my
mountain bike towards the confluence. Although the road - and all of
the nearby terrain - is flat, the sandy conditions made riding
I reached the confluence in the late afternoon, 1/2 hour before
sunset. The low sun led to some excellent photos. The sun had just set
when I returned to my car.
