(visited by David Coombs)

25-Aug-2007 -- With a weekend free and confuence points all around I had to go visiting. It would be combined with a trip to see the Cappadocia region.

This point lies just outside the Ankara ring road. As navigation is difficult at the same time as driving, I put several waypoints into the GPS between the centre of Ankara and the CP. It all went pretty smoothly and after setting off at 8, I was at the point before 9. It was as described before - the point lies above a field which had wheat in. The red rock was a little disappointing - maybe it needs evening sunshine, but I met none so did not need the excuse anyway. A new vineyard has been planted between the point and the road - but does not impede access.

All done and off to 39N 35E and Cappadocia.
