#1: In the middle of nothing

(visited by A. Dimopulos and Michael F. Klein)

03-Feb-2001 -- I visited this confluence point with an old friend from university. Thanks, Michael, for coming along !

This N52E8 confluence is located, as are so many of them, in an agriculturally used area. I have no idea what kind of crops is grown there, since the field was still covered with snow. We had even thought about not attempting to go there because of the unpleasant weather, but we finally managed to get ourselves motivated.

The place was quite easy to reach, but not particularly fascinating, to be honest. Take a look at the pictures and judge for yourselves. Maybe it's worth a second visit in summertime.
