07-May-2021 -- I had visited this point once before, almost 7 years ago, and remembered it being especially pretty. So - while on a road trip from the San Francisco Bay Area to Yellowstone National Park - I decided to revisit it, to get a ‘drone’s-eye view’. Last time I hiked about 1 mile from the Northeast - climbing up the hill. This time I chose to approach the point from the South - the approach that Shawn Fleming took in 2017. Following Shawn’s suggested waypoints - [42.985640,-114.963226] and [42.990848,-115.000554] - I took a series of 4WD dirt roads, ending up just 0.12 miles South of the point. After crossing a barbed-wire fence, it was an easy hike through a sagebrush maze, and then partway down a grassy slope to the point.
The point looked the same as on my last visit, though didn’t seem quite as pretty as I’d remembered it. This time, the sky was overcast rather than sunny, and (despite being in May rather than June) the ground seemed noticeably drier and less lush. Nonetheless, the view down the valley to the North (towards a farm) was quite pretty; I flew my drone down there and back.
Here is a remote-controlled aerial video of this confluence point.
