(visited by Ross Finlayson)

19-Jul-2014 -- With a day to spare before the start of an Internet Engineering conference in Toronto, I made an obligatory sightseeing trip to see Niagara Falls, and an obligatory visit to a nearby Degree Confluence Point while on my way back to Toronto.

Leaving the freeway near Hamilton, I drove south through suburbs that eventually turned to farmland. Shortly after crossing the scenic Grand River (with several less-than-scenic high voltage electricity towers nearby), I turned onto "3rd Line" road, which passed just 450 metres northeast of the confluence point. From there it was an easy hike first along the edge of a wheat field, then, after crossing a fence, across another field - recently planted with an unknown (to me) crop - to the confluence point. (Fortunately the crop was planted sparsely enough that I was able to avoid stepping on any of the farmer's crop.)

The view was pretty much the same in all directions, except that the nearby high voltage electricity transmission line was visible to the east and south.
