(visited by John Bylund)

20-Jul-2004 -- I was travelling alone, doing another mapping survey for HEMA Maps when I noticed a confluence nearby. I drove through scrub for about 1km till it got too rough to continue by vehicle. I started walking toward the confluence, toward a prominent hill which featured some extraordinary rock formations. The strata of iron rich rock which formed the hill protruded at a sharp, near vertical angle, with some quartz also in the area. Fascinatingly shaped, layered heavy boulders littered the scene which had a real rugged beauty. I climbed to the top of the hill, about a kilometre from the vehicle and still found myself about 300m short of the confluence. I decided that was as far as I would go because I was very short of time and the photos from the top of the hill would show the lay of the land better than if I was at the actual confluence which was down in scrubby country. When I visited the website on return, I was slightly disappointed that someone had beaten me to it, but glad that they had had a similar adventure and shared the experience.
