#1: The confluence up in the hills across the fjord

(visited by Terje Mathisen)

17-Mar-2003 -- After my failed attempt to make a repeat visit to N64E12, I turned back to my original plan: Drive as close as possible to N64E11, and then ski over some marshes, ending up on the ice in the middle of the lake which contains the point.

However, as I had already been forced to turn back due to missing snow cover on the first confluence I tried, I realized that there was absolutely no chance of finding safe ice on the lake, so I drove into Steinkjer centrum and visited a local bookstore which had very detailed topographic maps of the area.

I did this in the hope that a point on the lakeshore would turn out to be within the 100 m limit for a successful visit, but alas, it was not to be: It is most probably 120 m from the shore to the point, which means that this confluence must either be visited in summertime, either by swimming or using a small inflatable raft, or on skis during a somewhat colder winter.

So instead of trying to ski or slog through the snow, just to be turned back within sight of my target, I drove back out of Steinkjer, catching a final glimpse of the confluence area across the fjord.

The map shows what's probably the two best approaches to this confluence, I hope this can help the next person(s) to try this point!
