(visited by Sacha Peter)

25-Jul-2020 -- The other relatively easy confluence in northern Alberta is this one. Most of the road to get here is paved until Range Road 211, where you turn into into a "no exit" area. Upon reaching the corner of Township Road 694 and Range Road 204, you can get out of the car and walk the half kilometer north into a moist, but not muddy farm field. This year it was planted with grass, which reached up in places over two feet.

There were no human beings around. I also took a picture of the sign that the previous confluence visitors 18 years ago saw. I see they installed new power lines since then.
