#1: The degree confluence point

(visited by EmmettDe)

18-Jan-2009 -- I parked some distance away and on the way to the confluence I took the path that was shorter but rather steep.

When I arrived at the confluence point it was already dusk. After some moving around and some waiting I managed to capture the moment when the GPSr displayed all zeroes at the minutes. The dusk was quite dark for my camera so I took the pictures of the area with flash. On them you see that it that there also was some rain. The bulldozer see during the previous visits was no longer there.

After some searching in about 60 m distance I saw the sign about the confluence which has been mentioned in other reports, too.

On the way back I took a slightly longer path which was less steep. Still with it was no easy walk as the paths and roads were partially covered with ice, especially outside the forest.
