#1: The Confluence

(visited by Rainer Mautz)

18-Apr-2004 -- That day I got up at 4 a.m. in Berlin in order to reach the city of Cottbus early enough to participate at the 3.Spreewald Marathon. After the run I still felt strong enough to ride back home to Berlin by bike. The Spreewald-Region (picture #2 and #9) is a pretty, flat and densely forested area with a lot of waterways. When I studied the map for a nice route, I realized how convenient a visit of this confluence would be. Indeed, it turned out to be right next on my way. Riding on the “Bundestrasse B87”, which is a major road between Lübben and Frankfurt (Oder) the distance to the CP was only 1 km. I took one of these small forestry tracks up to a distance of 150 m to the point. The final approach turned out to be a little tricky, since the point is in an area of densely planted young conifer trees. These trees come in long straight rows so close to each other, that passing through them is slow and one may get hurt by the lower branches. Especially bringing a bike the wasn’t a very intelligent thing to do. Well, somehow I managed to access the CP and take the photos. After a picnic I left that forest and continued my biketrip back home.
