(visited by Shawn Fleming)

20-Aug-2005 -- It was time for another confluence adventure, this time successfully visiting confluences in Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, and Montana.

I had just visited 38N-112W, and passed through Richfield, where David Mower lives, and admired the picturesque Red Stripes on the mountains. I turned off Interstate 70 onto US-50 and found a gated dirt road that led me even closer to the confluence. I was able to park only .56 miles away.

Thunderstorms were active in the distance and moving towards me. I would end up racing one of these storms on my hike.

I located the confluence on the northern side of an east-west running ravine. I had to cross two ridge spines, each with about a hundred feet of elevation gain/descent. There were lots of pinon trees in the general area. I found a cairn near the confluence in between two trees. I took my pictures and hustled back to beat the coming storm.

Picture #1 looks west. Picture #2 looks north. Picture #3 looks east. Picture #4 looks south. Picture #5 shows the cairn in the confluence area. Picture #6 shows my GPS location. Picture #7 shows the gate at N38 59.671 W112 00.624

Total time off US-50 was 1:03 with a drive/hike roundtrip of 2.2 miles.

Next stop: 40N-112W.
