01-Feb-2017 -- The further you stay north the closer the latitudes are located. So it was easy for us to spot the second confluence of the day on our way to Skinskatteberg, Sweden. We are fortunate, loving snow and ice, in finally finding some rest of ice and small heaps of old snow in this area. A welcome variety in the green and brown landscape, which for sure is lovely as well - in the rest of the year, but not in winter time.

We were able to park close to the confluence once again, using the entrance of an access road for lumberjacks. The first few meters were quite icy, we tried to walk like penguins keeping our center of gravity above our feet, later we followed a deeply furrowed, frozen forest road until our compass indicated the confluence crosswise to the road. Just some meters deeper in the working forest we were able to spot the confluence. Due to the density of the trees the reception was not so good, maybe someone else is able to come closer to the real crossing of longitude and latitude.

Anyway we enjoyed the hike, took our pictures, and left with one more experience in our treasure chest of adventures.
