#1: The confluence point

(visited by Nils Svensson, Cecilia Svensson and Loella Svensson)

31-Oct-2009 -- Left home at 12:30 to try and find my second confluence point. Its Halloween today and the temperature is +1 degree Celsius and it’s a very foggy day, and very slippery on the icy road.

After an hour drive we left the car for a 600 meter walk, we got about 30 meters and found a big bear poop, we decided to proceed anyway, hoping it’s gone to sleep. It was a bit difficult to walk over a clear-felled area and it was very wet on the ground.

Close to the confluence moose hunters have built a shelter for the rain and it even have a little stove to keep it warm. Found the exact spot and took the pictures, when the last picture was taken the battery on the camera was empty, forgot to charge it before we left home.
