15-Jun-2007 – Continued the story from confluence 54°N 122°E.

The third confluence was visited at the 5-th day of the journey from Vladivostok city.

At the second part of that day we drove up to the confluence environs. We started to investigate how to reach it from the motorway. The confluence is located to the left from the route in the distance of about 6 km (exit at the point 52°02.7N 115°57.1E), at a down with a stiff growth. We slowly and carefully drove by our truck, for 26 minute. There are edelweisses around and there is the triangulation mark nearby. Its precise coordinates are 52°00.396N 115°59.786E, elevation 783 m. Visibility was up to 20 km. The confluence point is in 5 km from Vasilyevka village.

To be continued... (here).

Our dairy notes could be read there (Rus).
