#1: The spot

(visited by Stephan Theriault)

22-Feb-2006 -- This confluence had been visited before but I was in the area so I thought I'd give it a shot too.

We parked by the side of the road and I proceeded on foot in the bush. It was hilly but fortunatly the scrub was not that thick. I came across a swampy area that didn't seem to have a way around it so I just walked straight into it. A few minutes later I came to a river that I obviously had to cross. It was shallow and since my shoes were muddy from the swamp, it was going to be the opportunity to give them a good clean, which I did.

I found the spot but had to fiddle around for a while to be as accurate as possible. The canopy above made it difficult to have the zeroes lined up. I gave up after a while and just took the pictures and walked back through the river, the swamp and the bush.

That was one of my most challenging confluences so far but very satisfying as well.
