#1: General view of the confluence

(visited by Stephane Rossetti)

29-Oct-2005 -- Stephane Rossetti and family were enjoying a wonderful sunny fall day at the Boo Bash (Trick or Treat event) in St Paul, Minnesota. When I realized that we were really close from this confluence, I decided to visit it.

We drove for about 15 minutes and arrived at the confluence just past 5:00PM. As said earlier by previous visitors, the confluence is in the front yard of the house at 1945 Polaris Place. Unfortunatly, the owners weren't home. We stayed outside of the property and therefore, weren't able to read and record the zeros on the GPS screen.

The weather was very nice (22C, 72F) for late October. The sun was coming down brightening the sky with wonderful red/orange colors. Just the time for the kids to play in the leaves, take the required pictures and celebrate our first confluence. After a 15 minute visit, we got back in the car and headed back home to post this visit on the website.

Take the next left, Holloway Ave., and go 0.73 miles to the intersection with Lakewood Dr. to the south and Polaris Place to the north. You may now go 234 feet north on Polaris Place, and then 219 feet west to the confluence, or 117 feet further west on Holloway Ave., and then 223 feet north to the confluence.
