#1: The confluence point lies on the left side of this bog.  Good luck reaching the precise point in summertime!

(visited by Ross Finlayson)

28-Jul-2007 -- The original visit to this confluence point was in winter, so I was pleased to add a summertime visit.

I approached this confluence point from the east, by driving through the pretty Menominee Native American Reservation, to the small, oddly named town of Phlox. (Wasn't "Phlox" the name of the alien doctor in Star Trek: Enterprise?) From there, a paved country road (Hillview Road) heads south for about 1 mile, and then a gravel road - Park Avenue - heads east. Park Avenue passes just 100 feet north of the confluence point.

I was able to walk within 95 feet of the confluence point. Unfortunately the actual confluence point lies within a fetid bog, so I didn't want to venture any closer. If you want to get "all zeros", then this is one confluence point that's better visited in winter, when the bog is frozen over.
