(visited by Matt Taylor)

23-Dec-1999 -- The hike to this confluence was along a seasonal riverbed in the Sonoran desert, so it was relatively dense with plant life. I had to GI Joe under a barbed-wire fence that paralleled SR 86 on the way to Sells. In the process I got some plant stickies in my back, which I couldn't get rid of. I tried to follow the wash, but it was often blocked with foliage, so my route to the site was far from direct. 32N 112W was located at a fork in the wash. It was a nice view: lots of saguaro, creosote and other desert plants; and in the distance, the observatory at Kitt Peak, and Baboquivari, the sacred mountain of the Tohono O'odham, on whose land this confluence is located.
