#1: the confluence point

(visited by Stephan Schmidt and Christian Wörtz)

29-Mar-2001 -- after the first two visits to confluence points, the newsmagazine "stern" became aware of us and this time we were accompanied by a reporter and a photographer. as we could not reach the point by car, we had to walk the rest of the way. no problem, if it is raining heavily and you have no umbrella :( but after 20 minutes we eventually got to the confluence point and took the pictures.

the newsmagazine article about this visit can be found here:

the caption (Die Jäger der unsichtbaren Punkte) can be translated like this: The hunters of the invisible points.
