(visited by Ross Finlayson)

29-Oct-1999 -- The easiest confluences to visit are those that lie on a road that has been laid out to follow that particular latitude or longitude. Such is the case with [38,-121] (in central California, east of Stockton).

It turns out that much of the "Escalon-Bellota Road" (aka. San Joaquin County Road J-6) was laid out to follow longitude 121 W, so finding [38,-121] was easy: Just drive along the road until you hit latitude 38 N!

Unfortunately this confluence was not only easy to find, it's also pretty boring. The confluence occurs as the road runs through bland farmland (cattle). There was, however, a small farmhouse next to the road at this point, and a very territorial dobermann barked and snarled at me as I took photos.
