#1: Location of CP52N-10E from distance of 40 m

(visited by Thomas Barthel)

25-May-2011 -- A trip to my friend in Norway gave me the possibility to visit several Confluence Points. The ninth and last one of this journey was the CP 52°N 10°E, located 500 metres south of Evensen, Germany.

Coming from the North on the motorway 7 it was quite a long way on small roads until I came to the area of the CP. But at luck it was a wonderful weather with bright sunshine and so the landscape and the villages looked really nice. I reached Evensens and drove through the village from north to south.

After following the small road for 520 metres I parked the car because the further way up the hill was forbidden to access by car. So I had to take the chance to get fresh air ad to walk the last 500 metres. At first you have to follow the way until you reach the forest. There you must turn left along the edge of the forest for about 170 metres. At this point I took the picture from the CP-location in a distance of about 40 metres to the CP. It is situated on a field planted with corn – What ever sort it may be.

Only some more steps and I reached the Confluence Point 52°N 10°E! The good weather caused the good reception and accuracy of signal from three metres. It was lunchtime and quite hot for the time of the year. From confluence.org I knew there was a confluence monument nearby. Just after about 100 metres into the forest I found the Monument with the information sign. On my way back I did a photograph of the nice wooden village sign with the note of the special location of Evensen. At home I found out that I was not the first one who photographed that..

This Confluence Point was easy to visit. It was the last Confluence Point I visited on this trip.
