19-Feb-1999 -- Four inches of fresh snow had just fallen in New Hampshire
the night before. My father, my eight-year-old sister and I pulled off to the side of
Route 302 (pic #5) as evening was approaching. Holding the laptop computer in
one hand and my sister's in the other, we trudged through the woods. At one point Andrea slipped in the snow up to her waist.
The confluence is located in a valley with a sluggish stream running through it. Andrea and Dick demonstrated the confluence concept in picture #2.
