#1: The Confluence from 15 m distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz and Elionora)

09-Jun-2018 -- This is the 4th out of 12 reports reaching confluence points in Poland. The story starts at 52°N 21°E and continues from 52°N 19°E.

Again we travelled on motorway A2. We left it at the Konin exit and continued on road no. 25 southwards. A minor county road took us up to 1 km to the confluence point. There, we found a very sandy track, which was difficult to drive on. This track got us within 272 m to the confluence.

We walked these remaining 272 m through a mixed forest consisting of big pine trees, smaller spruce and deciduous trees. We found the confluence in a pine forest with huge trees next to a thicket of smaller trees.
