#1: Location of N46 E6

(visited by Ole Henseler)

07-Aug-2009 -- Coming back from a motorcycle trip through the Italian and French Alps on my way to Geneva, I passed the city and the lake of Annecy where it was very crowded and very hot. About 20 km behind Annecy, I stopped the motorcycle nearby the confluence in the shadow and had a break before I started to hunt the zeros.

This confluence was very easily accessible and no curious observers were around in the midday heat. I found the zeros very quickly, took my photos and left towards Geneva where I stayed another night before I drove home the next day having more than 400 km in heavy rain on the bike...
