21-Dec-2007 -- I've been reading the descriptions of this confluence, and most of them talk about beating through the brush to get near. After the fires in October, we thought that this problem would be abated. Boy, were we right. There was nothing left on the hillside.
We drove up into high valley, parked on a side road, and hiked southeast to the confluence. Total distance from the car was about 350 yards, across a slope.
While we were there, one of the homeowners came out, and apparently confusing us with geocachers, explained that the confluence "had been removed". He also said that he was having a lot of problems with mudslides, and asked that we not come back, and tell other people that the confluence was on private property.
