During August 2003 I drove through British Columbia and into the
Northwest Territories on a combined confluence hunting and sightseeing trip.
I started close to 49°N and went as far North as 61°N, covered
6,200 kilometers (3,850 miles), did 7 successful confluence visits, and
had another 12 confluences that are incomplete. I made
a map that shows the route,
and the confluences in the order they were done, with the successful ones
shown with black markers. The incomplete visits are a mix of actual attempts
and situations where I drove somewhat close to the confluence, and included
a 'visit' as a way to document the confluence location for future visitors.
The first confluence on the trip was
14-Aug-2003 -- After my visit to
55°N 120°W the day before, I
left my campsite, drove back to Highway 52, and continued north to Highway 2.
At the junction with Highway 2, if you turn right (to the East), it is 2
kilometers to the British Columbia / Alberta border. My GPS showed the
border sign to be at 120°00'04.6".
I turned left at the junction with Highway 2, and drove into Dawson Creek
to get some gas and food. I then drove back on Highway 2, and turned north
onto Rolla Road. After 33 kilometers, I turned right (east) onto Albright Road,
and stopped at 120°W, about 6.4 kilometers down the road.
The confluence is located at the edge of a field on the north side of
Albright Road. The farm equipment in the
West photo was working on the
field when I was there.
The next confluence on this trip was
