20-Jun-2022 -- From [41,-110], I drove eastward, passing several times between Wyoming and Utah. The unseasonably bad Summer weather continued with heavy rain as I drove through Utah’s Flaming Gorge, then let up as I drove towards the “Three Corners Triangle”: The ’tripoint' where Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado meet - less than 3 miles West of this Degree Confluence Point. But unfortunately I had to abort my attempt to reach this tripoint, because the recent rains had made the steep dirt access road too treacherous to continue driving on, even with 4-wheel-drive.
Although I was currently very close to this Degree Confluence Point ‘as the crow flies’, the roads in this area are very circuitous, so I had to drive for another hour before I got there. After crossing into Colorado, I ended up taking the same route that the previous visitors - Gavin Roy and Kurt Woock - took in November 2014. I ended up passing through a ranch (signed "Diamond Peak Cattle Company”), including a couple of gates. Eventually, I reached the point, which lies atop a small hill, just East of the road. The Wyoming state line (with a fence and gate) is just 200 feet to the north.
This is an especially beautiful point. It is at quite a high elevation - more than 8300 feet. (As I flew my drone here, I kept getting warnings about “flying at altitude”.) Given the high elevation, I found it surprising that Roy and Woock were able to reach this point in November; all of the other visits to this point have been in Summer.
Here is a remote-controlled aerial video of this confluence point.
