05-May-2013 -- Comments: This was my tenth and final confluence visit in Eastern Colorado over the last two days, but sadly it was the least picturesque, the easiest way being to jog the entire way along maintenance truck trails beneath three massive parallel power lines. Skunkweed was in bloom in some parts, and two separate sets of perfectly white scattered cow bones were seen along the way. This was an incredible and beautiful serial confluence journey, and one that will be remembered for quite some time for the unique roads, animal encounters, campsite, and abandoned farmsteads seen along the way. I arrived home at 6:27p having left home almost exactly 37 hours earlier. Total mileage: 1049.4 mi.

Temperature: 57 deg. F
Parking location: E. 152nd Ave. and 104 deg. W
