HBC First Contact Site with Cree. 

At this gravesite at the confluence of the Otter and Fawn Rivers, the HBC claims they first made contact with the Cree of the Severn watershed in the 1720's. It had been spruced up since my first visit in 1983. This is one of the most sublime sights in the North. 

The Fawn is narrow and the shores bushy here. The gravesite is just up the Otter from the confluence. It is the first tall sandy bank you encounter (from there on down the banks regularly rise in this fashion). And there is a pack of wolves on this stretch of the river.
