(visited by Silke Heilig and Wolfgang Vogel)

21-Mar-2002 -- This is our second trip to visit confluences in Sweden during winter time. Going further north, we take ski with us which most of the times is very helpful to reach the points.

Refering to the map we hoped to go by car very near to the confluence but we missed a branch - this road was not swept - and ended up in the middle of nowhere.

We stayed overnight and returned to the highway the next morning. Driving as near as possible, we started skiing cross-country. For Silke it was the first time on ski and we went over hills and through depressions serveral times. A good way to learn, remember using feet serveral foots long!

The confluence is at a rim of a dense forest so you can only see trees of pine and birch around you.
