26-Sep-2015 -- Way back in December 1999 I recorded the first visit to this confluence point. This was in the era of “Selective Availability”, so I wasn’t able to get ‘all zeroes’ then. So, almost 16 years later, I decided to return to this point while en route to southern Arizona and New Mexico.
As I drove along County Line Road, I could tell that there were noticeably more houses in the area than in 1999. From reading the report from the most recent visit (by Joseph Kerski), I knew that - unlike in 1999 - I would not be able to approach the confluence point by descending from the ridge to the east, because of a recently-built mansion on the ridgeline.
Instead, I approached the confluence point by climbing up from the lowlands to the west. Satellite imagery helped me a lot, but it still took a convoluted route, involving both climbing and descending, before I was finally able to get up on the ridgeline that’s just to the north of the point. From there, I scrambled down to the drainage, then a short way up the hillside on the southern side, to reach the point, which lies on a steep, scrub-covered hillside. I saw (but didn’t bother opening) a ‘geocache’ box nearby.
