#1: Down-up view of the confluence location

(visited by Tommi Leino and Katariina Alainen)

04-Jul-2001 -- Next one to the south from Lapua's confluence (N63 E23), this confluence was very fun to get. We took the train from Kauhava to Parkano - around 122km and visited that little city, a true forest city it was!

For our suprise, we needed to take taxi-bus from Parkano's railway station to the city of Parkano. Looking from the Parkano's station you couldn't see anything but forest. The city itself was hidden behind a 7km ride from the station.

The exact confluence location was 4km away from the city, in middle of a forest. The forest's terrain was most fun, there were trees so close to each other it was hard to get through all the branches, the ground was full of rocks and at one area there was a nice swamp I didn't first notice at all, until my feet begun sinking.

The confluence location itself was on kind of a forest clearing, not too much trees there. Very near to the confluence location there was a stick on the ground, perhaps marking private land boundaries.

After we got the confluence, we walked back to the city of Parkano. About 2km walk from the confluence location there was a nice little river - it was so refreshing after the trip to dip our legs in the water. The last picture is a view of the city of Parkano.
