#1: looking east. still wide field. /朝东看.还是黑土地

(visited by hao huang, xiaoyan yu and jingyou Liu)

03-May-2007 -- We had prepared this plan for a long time since we knew this project. We printed a map of this confluence through Google Earth(Thanks Google, it did a great favor). We borrowed a GPS. Then we started.

This confluence is a little far away from our town, we went there by bike. WE started at 5:20 AM. It took about 5 hours to get there. Luckily, it didn't rain, or we would get trouble in the mud.

We got off bikes at the hiking start according to the map. I took out GPS and it showed close to that point. With the help of GPS guiding, we got to this confluence in half an hour. We were so exited.

After taking pictures, we came back to start point soon. It was going to rain.
