#1: Small forest opening at the confluence

(visited by Grzegorz Chyla)

05-Aug-2000 -- 52N 16E is located about 15 km north of Sława, where my in-laws live. I wanted to go there since I visited my first confluence back in February, but somehow did not decide to do it earlier. Finally came a summer weekend and I decided to give it a go. I drove to a road crossing near Sławocin. Unfortunately, the road near forest rangers post Rudno was too small to drive, so I had to walk 2 km from the crossing.

I walked a small forest road through beautifull pine forest. I passed an unused railway line and found a large opening to my left. My GPS showed that the confluence is about 200 meters into a young and dense forest to my right. After I crawled through it, I found that the confluence lies on a very pleasant small opening just behind it.

On my way back I collected a handfull of wonderfull delicious mushrooms.

It is still open to me in which district the confluence is situated. There is a sign showing a border between voivodships Lubuskie and Wielkopolskie on the crossing I came to. It seems that the border runs along the small forest path I followed. Since the confluence is to the right, it looks that it is in Wielkopolskie voivodship (województwo = district).
