Viene de 33°N 95°W.

Al salir de la población de Pittsburg en las inmediaciones de 33°N 95°W, me dirijo al sur por la carretera 271 hasta la población de Tyler cuando cambio a la carretera 69 y en Jacksonville a la 2574 hasta Palestine. Luego tomo la carretera 287 hacia el noroeste. Al encontrarme con la carretera rural 483 giro hacia el norte, paso por una planta compresora de gas y continúo hacia el norte hasta que llego al área de la confluencia.

Estacioné el vehiculo y me dispongo a explorar como ingresar al terreno donde se encuentra la confluencia, pero me percato de la presencia de un aviso el cual prohíbe expresamente la entrada al lote de tierra donde esta ubicada la confluencia. En virtud de que no pude encontrar a nadie para solicitar el permiso y dado la existencia del aviso, me conformo con acercarme lo mas posible a la confluencia desde la carretera sin entrar a la propiedad, logrando un acercamiento de 92 mts a una no muy placentera temperatura de 2°C (para alguien acostumbrado a temperaturas tropicales) a las 12:33 pm.

Luego de tomar las fotos requeridas, parto de inmediato a la confluencia 32°N 97°W, pero el área de la confluencia había sido recientemente arada y de paso en la zona estaba lloviendo, lo cual tenia convertido en un enorme lodazal. A lo lejos vi 3 grandes perros blancos que se acercaban corriendo al carro, pero al ver que me alejaba desistieron la persecución. En virtud de ello, decido continuar a mi próximo objetivo, la confluencia 32°N 98°W.

Comes from 33°N 95°W.

Once I leave Pittsburgh town in the vicinity of 33°N 95°W, I set course southward on road 271 up to Tyler town when I change to Highway 69 and later in Jacksonville to the road 2574 to Palestine. Then I take Highway 287 Northwest. When I find rural road 483, I turned northward, passes through a gas compression plant and continued northwards until I reach the confluence area.

I parked the vehicle and exploring how to enter the area where the confluence is located, but I realize the presence of a notice which expressly prohibits the entrance to the lot of land where the confluence is. Given that I could not find anyone to request permission and the existence of the notice, I tried to get the better possible approach to confluence from the road without entering the property, achieving 92 meters closer with a not very pleasant temperature of 2°C (to someone accustomed to tropical temperatures) at 12: 33 pm.

Once I took the required pictures, I immediately set up course to confluence 32°N 97°W, but the confluence area had been recently plowed and in the area was raining, so the confluence terrain had become a huge mire full of mud by everywhere. In the distance I saw 3 large white dogs that came running to the car, but when they saw me away gave up the chase. With this facts, I decide to continue to my next target, the confluence 32°N 98°W.
