09-Aug-2008 -- Today was the Norwegian national Ultra Long Distance orienteering championship, and at the same venue there was also a regular length (two-day) race for those who didn't take part in the championship.
I ran a decent race in class H50AL, and was lucky enough to finish just before another rain-shower came down. Instead of waiting for those who had started after me, to see if they would beat me, I decided to leave the arena to visit this confluence: It was just 5-6 km distant from the race center!
I parked on the side of a bus stop that's located almost directly opposite the confluence, less than 300 m away, and ran into the forest: It had changed a lot in the time since my previous visit to this point, in Nov 2000!
There had been quite a bit of logging work, new houses had been put up, and the undergrowth was a lot denser than on my previous trip.
The little clearing that contains the point, located just 10-15 m from the edge of a big field, is home to many wild raspberry bushes, I simply had to take the time to eat several mouthfuls !
On the way back I tried to follow a path that didn't exist 8 years ago, but it went too far south, so I had to bushwack a bit to get back to the car, see the track log.
