#1: The confluence in the brushwood

(visited by Ola Hellstrom and Carlotta Hellström)

25-Dec-2000 -- On Christmas day my daughter Carlotta and I took a 40 kilometres northbound trip with the car from Gothenburg to the confluence of lat 58 north and long 12 east. The confluence is situated in the northern part of Svartedalens nature conservations area.

The weather was pretty chilly around 7 centigrade below zero and the sun was shining from a very low position on a entirely blue sky. The confluence is situated only about 45 meters from a little road in the woods about 10 kilometres from the coastline of the Bohuslän county. The terrain was very bad with cliffs and brushwood. It took me about 20 minutes to find a passable way to the confluence.

After visiting the confluence we took a short walk to a nice little lake about 500 meters north of the confluence and even made a little trip out on the newly frozen ice.
