#1: The confluence marked by two trunks

(visited by Jan Krogh)

21-Jul-2002 -- This confluence is my first in my native country, at Alappmo village in the inner part of Troms county. This area was a traditional Sami land but was repopulated in the 18th and 19th century by settlers from South Norway. Still it is possible to hear South Norwegian dialects in these surroundings.

My family and I were on the way from my parents in the city of Harstad to our family's summer house in the island of Senja when we took the small detour in order to see 69°N 19°E.

It is the most accessible Troms confluence, located in a birch forrest, very close - some 100 meters from the main road. The others are far from roads or/and high up in mountains. I'll better leave them for future summer holidays!
