#1: Area of CP 61N-9E from a distance of 50 m

(visited by Thomas Barthel)

12-Aug-2013 --

During this holiday trip through the south of Scandinavia it gave several opportunities to visit confluence points. The visit of the CP 61N-9E was the sixth one in this row.

From Stondafjorden we took a small curvy road (Fv267) uphill. From the level of 350 m we soon reached a height of 550 m. Now we passed several single farmsteads along the now straight leading road. Soon we reached the very close area of the CP. The street passes the CP in a distance of only about 40 m. A parking place was found right beside the road. On the left side of the road, view to direction southwest, is a pedestrian's way. From here the zero point was in a distance of 58 meters. These last meters were done quickly by passing some trees. Now I realized the close distance to a weekend house from about 20 meters. A fence around is located between the house and the CP. It seemed that nobody was at home in the house "Kosekroken". After doing the necessary pictures at the confluence 61N-9E we continued the trip and had a nice break at the Vasetvatnet. Heavy construction activities for private homes are clearly evident.

This was a further easy-to-reach visit. Now our trip continued direction west to Bergen and later on direction south to the CP 60N-6E.
