(visited by Thomas Barthel)

12-Aug-2013 -- During this holiday trip through the south of Scandinavia it gave several opportunities to visit confluence points. The visit of the CP 61N 10E was the fifth one in this row.

It was rainy when we came back from Lillehammer on a road called Torpavegen. By taking a shortcut along Valheimsvegen we reached the Nord-Torpvegen. Now it was only another 4 km to the CP, direction WNW. At the half distance we found a beautiful resting place on a house bridge over the small river Gjerda (picture 9). After a nice break we reached the location of the CP at Fagerlund. It was a small area next to the road, in front of gate with a wide green meadow, two houses and a small shed behind it. The Confluence Point is located on that meadow, which was cut since the last visit a month ago. After checking out that nobody was at home (or just weekend house) I decided to walk on the private ground. The gate was not locked. Now it was only 45 m to see the exact intersection of the CP 61N 10E on the GPS display. At 10:30 a.m. while it was drizzling I did the pictures of the area. The GPS showed a precision of 3 meters. Soon I walked back through the wet grass to the car. I could hear the roar of the river Gjerda flowing behind a meadow opposite the road (picture 8).

With this my most northern visit at all was fulfilled. It was a short and an easy-to-reach visit with the special note of entering a fenced area. Now the trip continued direction west.
