01-Mar-2011 -- Our tour around Finland finally comes to an end, but some confluences are still left to visit. This one is quite close to small roads in the woods, if they have been serviced by a snowplough. And we were lucky to find another cleared forest track at every crossroad we wanted to turn to get a good approach to the confluence. After a quick lunch in the car we started our final approach. First it seemed like we would end up on open field and started being happy about that but the GPS told us to continue. We had to cross a wide and deep to shoulder dyke and entered another part of the wood to finally log the confluence. Nice landscape and interesting combination of wood and field, quite astonishing after all those other experiences with “woody” confluences.
