#1: The field 15 m east of the point

(visited by Terje Mathisen)

19-Jun-2010 -- SAS lost my original booking for the flight to this year's Jukola night orienteering relay, so I had to leave a day early. This gave me lots of time for confluence visits. My plane into Helsinki was unfortunately delayed until after midnight, so in the end I just got my rental car and drove 15-20 minutes out of the city.

I started with this confluence early in the morning, after sleeping 5-6 hours in the car.

My maps show a dirt road leading from the gravel road junction located just 53 m from the point, but that dirt road is completely overgrown, it hasn't been used in many years.

The confluence is located in dense forest, just 15 m in from a nearby field.

I got photos in the cardinal direction, plus small panoramas of the field and the road junction, before going on to the next point, 61°N 25°E
