(visited by Ross Finlayson)

20-Jun-2022 -- After a brief vacation in Salt Lake City (which included successfully reaching [41,-112] on the shore of the Great Salt Lake), I spent today visiting two remote but accessible Degree Confluence Points to the east. As I drove east on I-80 from Salt Lake City towards Wyoming, I experienced a freak Summer storm, with snow flurries and temperatures in the 30s F. The weather was starting to clear as I exited I-80 at Fort Bridger, Wyoming, and drove south - through the town of Mountain View - along Wyoming highway 414, towards this point. But then, as I turned onto the rural dirt road that passes next to the point, bad weather returned, and I had to wait in my car until a hailstorm passed. Eventually I was able to leave my car and hike to the point, which lies in sagebrush, just 200 feet East of the road. This is a typical ‘western US sagebrush’ Degree Confluence Point.

This was the first recorded visit to this point since September 2000. Shawn Fleming registered an incomplete visit in 2014; at that time, he noted a “No Trespassing” sign beside the dirt road. I didn’t see any such sign; the road appears to be public. (Just 0.2 miles south of the point, the road briefly doglegs along the Wyoming-Utah state line, before continuing into Utah.)
