#1: View towards east from the confluence

(visited by Anders Ljungstrom and Olle Ljungstrom)

13-Jan-2001 -- After having visited the two confluences nearest home it was now time for me to visit the third one, this time together with my brother Olle. The wea-ther was almost perfect, with sunshine and a temperature just around freezing. The visit was not particularly challenging since we could go by car to a point about 100 m from the spot.

The confluence is situated about 25 m into a wood of sprouces. There is a small glade almost exactly on the spot, which was enough to give sufficiant GPS reception and enough light to take photos.

The trees in the wood look quite young, so probably this area has been cut clear some years ago. They also look surprisingly "unhealthy", perhaps because they are growing too tight to get enough of light.

The surrounding area is quite typical for southern Sweden, with a mixture of forests, lakes and cultivated land.

On the way home, we had planned to visit the unofficial confluence N59/E17. But it was so late on the day that it would have been dark when we arrived there. Instead we stopped at a small restaurant for dinner.
