(visited by Germar Lohstraeter)

04-Feb-2001 -- I have two reasons to visit this particular confluence. First of all I grew up in the area. Secondly my kids and I were on our way to visit my sister in the town of St. Paul about 30 miles east of the above confluence. Lucky for us the confluence was located on the edge of a field/forest area next to the road. Parking the car in a roadside approach the kids and I walked across the field to the forest edge where the confluence exists. The kids found the walking to be somewhat difficult because of the hard packed but shallow snow cover. In the end I had to carry my 4 1/2 year old daughter but my son managed to make the hike. Returning to the car we continued our trip to St. Paul.
