These animals were about 300 m from the confluence...obviously they had bagged it before us.

19-Apr-2007 -- This confluence visit is dedicated to Ms. Faulk's Special Education Class at Dwyer High School in Jupiter, Florida!

Seven U.S. and Canadian scientists traversed by snow-mobile from Fairbanks, Alaska to Baker Lake, Nunavut, Canada in March and April of 2007. This 4200 km trip was to measure snow cover and to talk to kids in schools along the way. On April 19th our route on Alymer Lake (frozen) took us within 7 km of the confluence at 64°N, 108°W, so we drove to that location. The weather that day was cold and cloudy, with poor visibility. However, upon arrival at the confluence, we were rewarded with seeing a musk-oxen herd (photos included).

The confluence itself is in an area of rolling terrain, mostly rocky, with moraine boulders and cobbles littering the ground surface.
