#1: Here's a view looking West of the point.

(visited by David Wood, Tamara Wood, Stan Friesen and Pat Friesen)

10-Jul-2005 -- After a meeting in Accra the previous week, we wanted to make the most of our 800 km return trip to Nalerigu. On the way back, we decided to visit as many of the confluence points as time would allow. This point was the second on our list.

We left Kumasi around 9 a.m. heading for 7N 2W. After our visit there, we left for Tamale where we planned to spend the night. On the way to Tamale, we knew that point 9N 1W would be a short distance off the highway we were on, but the day was overcast and we only had a few hours of daylight remaining. Around 5 p.m., we came to the turnoff at Kusawgu. The point looked about 23 km away, but we knew it would be a bit further down that dirt road. We decided to try it. Bouncing and racing along, we were delighted to come to a stop on the road less than 20 meters from the spot!

We beat a path through the waist-high grass to locate the point under a bush, took some fun pictures and headed for the hotel. All in all, it was a great day!
