#1: The confluence point lies in a pine forest

(visited by Ross Finlayson)

30-Jul-2007 -- It seems that almost ever land confluence in this part of the US lies in either a pine forest, a marsh, or both. 46N 86W lies in a pine forest, but is accessed by crossing a marsh. (In this respect, it is very similar to Wisconsin's 45N 88W that I had visited two days earlier.)

From highway 2, there is just a 0.2 mile hike to get to the confluence point; however, the thick marshy vegetation - plus several downed trees - makes the hike non-trivial. There is also a creek to cross. Alan and Carolyn Fox - the previous visitors to this confluence point - called it Fernia Creek, but I think that future confluence visitors should call it "Fox Creek", to honor the Foxes' initial description. Fortunately, I was able to cross the creek using one of the many downed trees across it.
