#1: Looking north from the confluence

(visited by Gordon Haverland, P.Eng.)

02-Sep-2001 -- This was my fourth, and last, confluence of the day, and final confluence of seven this weekend.

I had noticed that someone else had attempted this confluence before, and didn't quite make it due to fading light conditions. I did see the almost overgrown government road, althought the government does seem to have an active stockpile of road material there. According to my GPS, the confluence was located quite a bit north of this road. I followed the road until it entered a farmers field heading north along the west edge of the field. I followed this as far north as it went, and still came up short of the confluence, so I turned around and sought another approach.

I did manage to find a road which crossed 53N, about 1.9km east of 110W. A track ran along a fence line just north of 53N most of the way to the confluence. Just before the confluence was reached, I came upon an almost dried up creek which had to be crossed.

The elevation at 53° 0' 0.0"N and 110° 0' 0.0" was 609m according to my GPS. Leaving the confluence at about 16:45, I proceeded to Lloydminster for a good meal and a good night's sleep, before driving back to Edmonton the next morning.
