Vortex trajectories typically have one or more attached stationary point trajectories. We call colloquially such a trajectory collection a bundle, and we study the permissible topologies and geometries of the individual trajectories as well as those of the bundle as a whole. Changes in bundle structure under changes in foliation are also studied.
