#1: View to the south over the confluence point

(visited by Fred Beier)

29-Jul-2002 -- Our knowledge of the swedish language was enough to recognize, that the way to the confluence point was only allowed for special vehicles. No problem, we were prepared for a walk through the beautiful wood in Northern Sweden.

Even the weather was very nice! On the northern side of the Storberget mountain, 306 metres high (south of Harads), after passing a wooded marshland we reached our target.

Unsere Kenntnisse in schwedischer Sprache reichten soweit, daß wir erkannten, daß der Zufahrtsweg nur für Sonderfahrzeuge zugelassen ist. Kein Problem, für eine Wanderung im schönen Wald im nördlichen Schweden waren wir vorbereitet, zumal auch das Wetter sich von der besten Seite zeigte. Am Nordhang des Storberget, 306 m hoch (südlich von Harads), nach dem Durchqueren von sumpfigem Gelände mit Wald erreichten wir unser Ziel.
