#1: View from the sunflower field at the confluence

(visited by Daniel Pustka and Elissa Sobotta)

07-Aug-2001 -- To reach the confluence from Albi we took the road to Cordes-sur-Ciel and after a few kilometers we followed a sign to Cestayrols. In a distance of about 1.5 kilometers from the confluence a small road lead to a farm. We continued until the confluence was only 200 meters from the road where we parked the car at the edge of a forest. The rest was just a little walk over a harvested wheat field.

The confluence lies on a grassy spot with some bushes between a wheat field (harvested at the time we came), a vineyard and a field of sunflowers. Nearby is a pile of stones with some rusty junk.
