#1: The confluence point lies in a pine forest, next to a rural road

(visited by Ross Finlayson)

29-Aug-2009 -- From my many confluence visits, one of the things that has surprised me the most is just how ubiquitous roads are - even in rural areas. Upon reflection, this shouldn't be too surprising; farms and commercial forests need roads to access them. But I still find it surprising how many confluence points can be accessed by driving within one mile - and frequently much closer.

Just like [46,-122], which I visited the previous day, [46,-123] can be accessed by a rural road that runs within a few tens of feet of the confluence point. From Portland, I took US highway 30 to the community of Deer Island, then took Canaan Road to Meissner Road to Apiary Road. Just over a mile West of the confluence point, a (very rough!) gravel road takes you almost directly to the confluence point. The actual confluence point lies just East of the road, in a picturesque pine forest with ferns covering the ground.
