Contest #469 was an attempt to break up the logjam on top and it seems to have allowed one player, Phil Ower, to take a one point lead going into the final contest.
It was chosen when I came across the Google Earth artifact that at some zoom levels has a greyed out spot over what looks like a pool of neon green. As far as I can tell, there is no secret toxic dump, neon green mine or the like at this location.
If anyone can tell me why this artifact appears, I would greatly appreciate it.
Panoramio has no pictures from near this spot, but I did find this account of a trek from Telegraph Creek to Atlin: http://riverswithoutborders.org/blog/2014/06/a-long-walk-in-the-taku
Only one player found the location without the hint:
- Phil Ower
While a few were aided by Nellie Cashman:
- Eloy Cano
- Ben S
- George, Esq.
- Marisa Boraas
