#1: Looking north to the confluence tree

(visited by Jost Jahn)

17-Mar-2001 -- This was my second confluence point and my first regular point.

During a trip to a meeting in Brandenburg, Germany, I learned that this point was only a mere 5 km south of the route to this meeting. So I drove some minutes earlier. Due to good route planning I have no trouble to find the position.

For my pleasureness the local travel company build a bus waiting house and station just 200 meters away. A single young woman looked a little bit seldom, as I stopped, jumped out of the car and went with my digital camera - holding a GPS about my head - north.

The land road was very empty. During the half an hour of my visit only 5 cars coming the road on a Saturday morning.

The confluence point was just 2 meters south of a nice tree and 1 meter of the road. In the north there was about 100 meter away the local cementary of this little village "Grube" and the local bus station. Some housea I saw also at this position.

Unfortunately the big panorama of 20 high oriented digital pictures are not complete. So I can only deliver the wide panorama of this location - but it´s also nice, I think.
