(visited by Karl Bryk)

07-Jul-2023 -- This is the 4th of 6 CP visits made during a 9 week trip to Sweden and England.

The prevoius is N52 E13.

The next is N52 W02.

After almost 4 weeks hiking and cycling in Sweden I had progressed far enough north to try and visit this CP. I visited CPs along the N61 line of latitude in 2019 and 2021 but this CP had been too far to the west to be able to visit it on those occasions. I had done some hiking during the day at Hovfjället so it was quite late in the day when I started the 17km drive on gravel roads to the parking place (N60.99977, E13010565) about 750m from the CP. I arrived there at 18:30 but the days were long so no danger of getting caught in the dark.

The hike to the CP started quite steeply uphill but after about 200m it was then pretty much flat all the way. Initially with lots of trees and bushes it opened up and was easy to get through to the CP, with more trees again at the CP itself. There was an wet area near the CP but I managed to skirt my way around this area. After a lot of rain it might have been very different.

The usual photos were taken and I returned to the car, this being easier as the last bit was downhill to the car. There followed 17km on gravel again and on to my accommodation for the night in the skiing area of Kläppen.

As it turned out this was the only CP visit in Sweden during this trip. I had planned to do N63 E13 and E63 E14 but didn't get that far North, as well as N59 E17 and N59 E18, south of Stockholm, but didn't get that far South-East.

Something for next year !!
