(visited by Terje Mathisen)

15-Nov-2008 -- Flying back to Norway from my Boulder visit, I once again passed this point, but this time going east, so I could just pull over onto the dirt along the Baseline road, walk 5 m south to the fence (which I crossed on my previous visit) and take the cardinal direction photos.

With bright daylight instead of just after sunset, it was much easier to get an impression of the confluence area, and in the photo pointing west I could even see the partly snow-covered mountains on the east edge of the Rocky Mountains.

Total visit time: About 4 minutes. :-)
