#1: Looking North.

(visited by Alan Fox, Carolyn Fox and Max)

18-Aug-2004 -- We took a road trip from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada to visit our daughters - one in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A. and one in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This is one of fourteen successful confluence visits along the way.

This confluence is one kilometer north of Highway 402 near Highway 21 (exit 34) leading to the town of Forest. Since the spot is located on farmland we went to the nearby farm on Egremont Road to ask permission to cross the property. The farm owner's father was busy welding in a large shed behind the house. Alan talked to him and he gave us permission. Better yet, he told us we could drive through the farm yard and use the trail heading south through the harvested wheat field. We were able to drive to within 11 meters of the confluence.

This is an area devoted mainly to farming. We observed harvested wheat fields, corn, and fields of soybeans. Forest, population 2800, seems to be a thriving town that caters to the local farm community as well as the tourists attracted to the area by the shores of Lake Huron (one of the Great Lakes) just a few kilometers away.

This was an easy visit on a pleasant but hazy day.
