Any way you look at it, Triple Divide Peak is one of the major hyrdrographic apexes of the world. My preliminary research seems to indicate that from this peak, the sum of the distances water must travel to reach the oceans is only exceeded by points along the Nile-Congo divide in Africa.

From Triple Divide Peak, water flows by these courses:

  • Pacific Creek, Nyack Creek, Middle Fork Flathead River, Flathead River, Clark Fork, Pend Oreille River, Columbia River, Pacifc Ocean
  • Atlantic Creek, North Fork Cut Bank Creek, Cut Bank Creek, Marias River, Missouri River, Mississippi River, Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean (5800 km/3600 mi
  • Hudson Bay Creek, Red Eagle Creek, Saint Mary Lake, Saint Mary River, Oldman River, South Saskatchewan River, Saskatchewan River, Cedar Lake, Lake Winnipeg, Nelson River, Hudson Bay, Hudson Strait, Atlantic Ocean (4000 km/1200 mi to Hudson Bay)

Triple Divide Peak looks like the prow of a battleship in this view from near Triple Divide Pass (1994-07-26).

Man of Steel opened yesterday, a much-anticipated reboot of the story of Superman¡¯s origins. The title character is played by British actor Henry Cavill, who appeared at the June 12 U.K. premier of the movie in London sporting a Tom Ford suit and an Omega Seamaster wristwatch. It has been reported that in 2005 Cavill was a contender to play the new James Bond in Casino Royale, which hit theaters in 2006. Apparently, the producers found him too ¡°young¡± for the role at the time, and it was given to Daniel Craig. This is interesting because both James Bond and Daniel Craig are Omega ambassadors, though both of their model choices generally fall in the sporty Seamaster direction. The version of the elegant Omega Seamaster that Cavill sports includes an annual calendar function. This replica omega Seamaster addition to the automatic movement displays day and date, and will only need to be manually corrected on March 1 due to the differing lengths of February. One very notable thing about the Seamaster¡ªand every other movement now made by Omega¡ªis that it contains the Co-Axial escapement invented by Dr. George Daniels and serialized by Omega over the course of more than ten years to make it perfect for use in a wristwatch movement. The finely finished movement can be seen through the sapphire crystal case back of this officially certified chronometer¡ªwhich means that the movement has undergone a series of grueling tests performed by Switzerland¡¯s Contr?le Official Suisse de Chronom¨¨tres (C.O.S.C. for short), a non-profit organization established in 1973 in Switzerland to certify accuracy. The version that Cahill wears is housed in a 41 mm red gold case that is water-resistant to 100 meters. On a brown leather strap it retails for $23,900 in the United States.
