(visited by Germar Lohstraeter)

04-Feb-2001 -- Arriving at my sister's acreage near St. Paul we had a nice lunch and check out the new place. A lot of work was done to clean up the yard i.e. remove old farm buildings and rebuild corrals for my sister's horses. The kids had fun playing with "Barkley" the Sheltie dog. My sister agreed to preoccupy the kids allowing me to drive to the next confluence about 20 miles east of her place. Using the county road allowances I parked as close as I could to the confluence area. The general area consists aspen poplar forest with open areas for cattle grazing. Lucky for me the area was heavily crossed with seismic lines making the hike relatively easy to find the confluence.
