#1: A view from the confluence point

(visited by Ross Finlayson)

28-Dec-1999 -- To reach the [33,-113] confluence, take the Painted Rock Dam road north from Interstate 8, exit 102.

As you approach the confluence, you may worry - as I did - that the latitude-longitude grid is conspiring against you, as you see rugged hills emerge from the surrounding expanse of flat desert. No need to worry, though, because the confluence shows up just before the hills. Even better, the road passes just 0.5 miles from the confluence. Just to the east of the confluence is an RV campground (visible in the background of photo #2). If you park here, you have an easy 0.4 mile hike to the confluence, along gently rolling desert.
