#1: 54N 114W - Facing North

(visited by Sacha Peter)

09-Jul-2010 -- Getting to this confluence was fairly simple. The range road to get to this point was signed as "meridian line 5" which was approximately 100 meters west of the 114W mark. Interestingly enough, they were grading the road - there was a dirt plough pushing dirt and rocks around on the gravel road.

The land grass that was roughly half way to my knees, with dry cow patties interspersed amongst the grass. There was a barbed wire fence, but there was a wooden fence in the southwestern corner that could easily be climbed. As it had been raining around this area, the grass was quite green.

The only remarkable structure that wasn't present in previous visits was a metal "box" that presumably is used for storing hay or something. I took pictures of the four directions and the box and got out of there.

After, 54N 113W was the target.
