(visited by Ross Finlayson)

29-Sep-2021 -- While returning to California from a vacation in Utah, I revisited this Degree Confluence Point that I had previously visited more than 11 years ago. As before, I reached this point by driving North from the town of Littlefield, then - shortly after crossing into Utah - taking a gravel road that heads diagonally southwest, re-entering Arizona. At [36.97775,-113.98702], I switched into 4WD, and continued North along the dry creek bed, following numerous tire tracks. At [36.98822,-113.99946], I took the rightmost fork, and continued North towards the point. Continuing along the creek bed, I was able to drive within about 200 feet from the point.

Fortunately, because the point lies on a creek bed (that’s occasionally covered with water), there was no rock cairn or any other marker at the point. I was able to fly my drone westward along the Arizona-Utah state line, about halfway towards the border with Nevada (about 2.8 miles away).

Here is a remote-controlled aerial video of this confluence point.
