#1: the confluence spot

(visited by Dariusz Stefan)

03-May-2001 -- 03-May-2001.

Fourth confluence from a trip of 8

Confluence 54N 023E is located 12km to the SSE of Suwalki. The area was not appealing as there was the Wigry Lake to the left and a thick forest to the right - we were in the Wigry National Park. Along the road - a narrow gauge railway track and no access to the confluence. I left my wife in the car (almost 1 pm, 616km) and on my own, first following a marked track, then through a thicket I reached the confluence spot a kilometer away. The return, after taking pictures, was much easier. Going in the direction of the car I saw foxes crossing my way. After a short rest we headed south.

To be continued at 53N 23E
