(visited by Terje Mathisen)

20-Oct-2000 -- According to the large-scale maps of Norway, as well as the MapQuest database, this confluence should be wet, but earlier this year, after carefully checking on a Norwegian map server (http://www.totalkart.no), I realized that it avoids this fate by a narrow margin, due to being located on a small peninsula.

Now, some months later, I had a business trip to this part of the country, so I decided to try to locate the confluence as well.

I flew from Oslo to Kristiansund on the west coast of Norway, and picked up a rental car for a trip along RV 70 (Norwegian highway nr 70).

About 37 km from the airport, the highway passes within less than a kilometer from the confluence point, and according to the map server, there should be a narrow dirt road leading even closer. I found the dirt road, which was open, it turned out to pass by a couple of farm houses, before ending in a cul-de-sac.

At this point I grabbed my GPS, and started jogging towards the confluence point. The tip of the peninsula is located just a few meters from the actual spot, so I took a series of photographs at this point, and then used Panavue's Image assembler to turn them into a panorama (photo #1).

I also took the obligatory shot of the GPS (photo #2), before jogging back to the car so I could continue my trip to Sunndalsøra.
