#1: The Confluence from 20 m distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz and Elionora)

30-Jul-2017 -- This is the 9th out of 13 reports reaching confluence points in Finland. The story starts from 61°N 28°E and continues from 63°N 22°E.

We drove to the town Lapua and parked our car at the outskirts of the town at the end of Leipähilankuja Road at a distance of 331 m. Our parking place was at the edge between huge flat agricultural fields and a hilly forest.

The hike was slightly uphill through different types of terrain and forests.

The confluence is located in a mixed forest of pine and various species of deciduous trees. The ground was entirely covered with ripe blueberries. Some nearby rocks are entirely covered with lichen.
