27-Nov-2004 -- It was time to head back home after the holidays and continue my one confluence a day pace. From Interstate 8, I got off at Exit 102, the Painted Rock Dam Road and continued north until I was abeam the confluence. I found no evidence of a campground as described by the first visitor. I did see Bureau of Land Management signs along the way stating that the area was closed to long term camping in an attempt to rejuvenate the area. There were also signs like the one shown in Picture #6 south of 33n that said the land was part of the Tohono O’Odham Nation; however, every map I have of this area clearly depicts that *all* of the land in this area is BLM land.
It was a quick hike towards the Painted Rock Mountains and the confluence from the road. There are two distinctive peaks to the north shown in Picture #1. Picture #2 looks to the east. Picture #3 looks south. Picture #4 looks west. Picture #4 shows a dual-redundant GPS solution with all zeroes.
I spent 26 minutes hiking 1.13 miles and we were off Interstate 8 for all of 55 minutes.
A great holiday weekend with four successful Arizonan confluence visits!
