#1: Confluence point

(visited by John Dag Hutchison)

04-Sep-2006 -- Driving south from Norway this confluence point was within easy reach of the highway. It required a few kilometers through mostly old pine forest. A bit up and down. Good weather, lots of berries and birds planning their annual migration southwards like me. A great day!

Returning to the main road, and by then a probably impatient wife, I heard the traffic fairly close by and took another way back. As it turned out an unmarked road passed much closer to the confluence point than the place from which I set out. Mobile phones are convenient so my wife headed down the highway, turned in and picked me up. Easy visit and wonderful to be alone in the forest!
