12-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.

We crossed the border from Buffalo, New York into Canada at Fort Erie, Ontario. Highway 3 took us to Nelles Corner where we turned onto Indian Line Road to reach Haggersville. A few kilometers north of Haggersville on Highway 6 we turned east onto 3rd Line Road. When we were even with N43° we parked the car beside the road.

The confluence is some distance off the road through two large soybean fields, separated by a fence and/or hedge. We went through the hedge. Because the crops were growing uneven and sparse in some areas but thick in others, we were able to make our way right to the confluence by following the tree line and zig-zagging through the sparser areas of the crop. There were small grasshoppers and lots of hungry mosquitoes. We weren't long taking pictures before making a hasty retreat.
