How to get there

The 4th Absence on Crocus Bluff

The "hibernating device" has been installed on the south hill of Crocus Bluff just before my leaving to Beirut. A few of my friends have already seen it. Here are the directions for the people in Dawson who would like to pay it a visit. Please let me know if you enjoy it and if it's still making any sound.

Here's how to get there...

  1. Go up to the Crocus Bluff "parking" following Mary McLeod Road (that's the place with the big "Crocus Bluff Recreation Site" sign as is shown on that post
  2. Take the path from there and follow it until you cross another path
  3. Make it to the left and walk until you reach the hillside (there are two interpretation signs there)
  4. Make it to the left again and follow the path that goes along the ridge
  5. Pay attention: about 20 meters from there you should see a tree with an orange ribbon on your right (if it's still there)
  6. Go down the hill following the orange ribbons, you'll find the work about 20 meters downhill

Note: The sound comes out of the holes on top of the piece, you have to get your ear really close to it as there is a lot of sound pollution around due to the highway downhill.

If you can find the installation's picture on this map, you're ready to find it on the field:

And here's a more precise view (the object is right at the tip of the green arrow):
