#1: view of the confluence

(visited by Louis R Boulay, Gérald Boucher and Rejean Hardy)

20-Mar-2005 -- It was on a beautiful sunny day when the three of us left Kuujjuaq on March 20th, 2005 at 9h00 by snowmobile looking for our point.

We traveled 26 miles in the direction South West on the Koksoak River; we then traveled 5 miles in the direction North West on a small creek. At approximately 1000 feet from the point we had to do the remainder of the trip by snowshoe due to the fact that we were on the side of a steep mountain where a snowmobile could not be driven.

We reached our point at 15h00. We arrived back in Kuujjuaq at 19h00. It was a very nice experience and we are planning on visiting more points in the near future.
