(visited by David Mower)

14-May-2004 -- This is a confluence point that I consider to be "mine" because no one has ever logged a visit to it except me and because it was the first virgin confluence that I ever visited. Participating in the Degree Confluence Project has been a life-changing experience. It has given me a new appreciation for the earth.

This past week I attended a work-related education conference at Ruby's Inn near Bryce Canyon National Park, a location very close to this confluence. It was very enjoyable. I had a chance to teach some co-workers about GPS technology and then to accompany them to their first-ever geocache visit.

My route home after the conference took me past this confluence. I was able to park within 800 meters. Conditions at the confluence were remarkably similar to my first visit more than 3 years ago. There had been no changes by either man or nature. There were no structures nor improvements of any kind. There was a fire in recent years and the same burned trees are still standing.

By the way, while at the conference one of my friends convinced me to take a helicopter tour of the National Park. I was a little apprehensive as we boarded the aircraft, but it turned out to be a smooth and wonderful half-hour flight. I will include one of the in-flight photos.

My thanks to the Degree Confluence Project team for this wonderful website. It was a great day! Thanks for getting me out!
