#1: View of Eureka Weather Station from the Confluence

(visited by Greg Penner and MWO Barb Eastman)

14-Jun-2005 -- This confluence is near Eureka and is easily accessed on foot from a service road which leads to a Hydrographic Services marker (3300) from 1956. The confluence (according to the GPS) is about 300 meters southwest of the marker. The spot is open Tundra just above Slidre Fiord. Eureka Weather Station is easily visible from this location.
