#1: View looking north from the confluence

(visited by Doug Gordon)

29-Oct-2000 -- This confluence is located a couple miles south of Port Austin, at the tip of Michigan's "thumb" region. Just a few steps away and you're in Lake Huron. The coastline of the thumb is all cottages and summer recreation spots, but the interior is all farmland -- mainly sugar beets and corn. Fortunately, this field had been harvested by late October and I was able to walk out to the actual confluence spot. Cornfields stretch out pretty much in every direction from here, clearly visible on the totally flat terrain. This was a perfect clear, crisp Autumn day. Just right for the last ride (and last confluence visit) of the season.
