#1: General view of the area

(visited by Christoph Marquardt)

26-Dec-2005 -- On Christmas I thought of a special christmas present! 51/9!!!

The weather was beautiful and snow started about 300m above sealevel.

Finding the area of the confluence was quite easy. The CP itself was a bit more difficult because trees were obstructing a bit. Goto direction on gps did not work properly. But finally I made it and got the zeros.

I could not find any mark at the spot.

I took a photograph of the general area. The CP is within the picture but not in the foreground.

I also took four photographs in every direction.

Finally as there was no possibility to place the camera I took a photo of myself using my left arm and went home following my footsteps in the snow because I forgot to save the starting position.
