(visited by Guillermo Terrazas)

02-Feb-2014 -- We decided to visit this confluence point while staying at San Carlos for the weekend, due the reason it was very close where we were staying (less than 3 miles). Even though, the point was already visited by someone else before, we decided to revisit it since we already had 4 points of our own.

The main group was formed by the members of the Nogales 4x4 Club plus a few more friends from the Orejanos 4x4 Club.

We departed around 10-11 AM. We only encounter one gate to access the land but it was open for our convenience. It took us only a few minutes to get there because there are a few dirt roads that almost get you there.

We got right to the point and we found a pile of rocks about couple feet off where my GPS was marking the exact location. This is OK due the tolerance of the readings.
