09-Jul-2002 -- Hora/Time: 17.30 AM. Altura/Height: 79 mts.

Por la mañana hallamos el punto 34ºS 60ºW y nos fuimos a almorzar, con la idea de regresar a casa temprano. Debíamos desandar 198 Km. para regresar a casa. Sin embargo, la ambición de lograr otro punto y la cercanía, nos motivo a seguir alejándonos de nuestro hogar.

Así tomamos rumbo Oeste, desde Arrecifes a Colon por la Ruta Nacional #8. 10 Km. antes de llegar a Colon, doblamos a la izquierda por caminos de tierra, buscando la Cañada de Colon, una depresión típica de la Provincia de Buenos Aires, que encierra un curso de agua pequeño.

El camino nos dejo a unos 700 metros de la confluencia. Tuvimos que saltar alambrados, caminar por un terreno que se torno mas fangoso hasta llegar al curso de agua.

Como la confluencia estaba del otro lado de la cañada y nuestras botas de goma quedaron prolijamente dentro de los vehículos, no tuvimos otra alternativa que mojarnos los pies (temperatura del agua aprox. 12 grados).

Sacamos las fotos con las ultimas luces del atardecer, pero con la satisfacción de haber pasado un hermoso día entre amigos.

Al llegar al camino, un nuevo brindis y a desandar los 300 Km. que nos separaban de Buenos Aires. Y con la promesa de encontrarnos próximamente en otro punto.

After finding the Confluence 34ºS 60ºW we went to a restaurant and had launch, with the idea of returning home early. We still had to travel 198 km all the way back home.

However, we were ambitious to find another confluence spot and so we finally decided to go further away from home in the search for it. We headed West, from Arrecifes to Colon, through the national route #8. 10 km before reaching Colon, we turned left through dirt roads, in the search for the Cañada de Colon, a known depression of the Province of Buenos Aires, that confines a small course of water.

The road was at about 1500 meters from the confluence spot. So as to get there, we had to jump fences and walk through a very muddy area before reaching the water course.

As the confluence was at the other side of it and we had left our rubber bouts inside our vehicles, we didn’t had other choice than to get our feet wet (with a water temperature of about 12 grades Celsius)

We took the pictures with scarce light, as the sun was already settling down, but with the satisfaction of having spent a beautiful and successful day among friends.

As we got back to the road in which our vehicles were, we had a last toast, and then began to unmake the 300 km in between us and Buenos Aires. With the promise of soon meeting again at another Confluence spot.
