02-Dec-2000 -- I took a 25 mile drive from home and turned into a newer upscale residential area in finding this confluence point. From a high hill nearby you can see the taller buildings of downtown Tulsa, OK. So, I was surprised that no one had worked this point since it is close to a population center, and is remarkably easy to get to.

The GPS directed me to a point seemingly in the backyard of one of these homes. I rang the doorbell and introduced myself to the owner, and together we went into his back yard. Sure enough, the confluence point was within the perimeter of the fence near the back 1/3 of his yard. The fence is some 20 yards from Coal Creek, as shown in the topo or aerial views of this site. None of the online mapping web sites or the two PC based mapping programs contain the cul-de-sacs that make up this sub-division.

The homeowner and I agreed to maintain the anonymity of his home and we agreed that I would take pictures of the sub-division instead. So, the two pictures taken were from about 1/4 mile away, facing ESE.
