(visited by Ron Reijnders)

15-Jun-2008 -- On a holiday trip in Norway (we have not visited Norway for many years) and staying at the Fagernes Camping grounds at Fagernes, I took advantage of the nice weather to do some geocaching. Then I realised that close to the caches I intended to visit was this confluence point.

The point itself is in a woody area and pretty close to a road, called Panoramavegen. Panoramavegen meaning something like: The road with a panoramic view. I travelled this road maybe thirty years ago for the first time. There was a lot less buildings at that time and the road was a dirt-track.

If you really want to have a look at the surroundings, follow the road about a mile or two kilometers to the west and if the weather is clear you will have a great view over the Jotunheimen mountains.

According to the previous visitors the confluence point is located in the garden of a a little cottage. Having a good reception and locked on 12 sats and an indicated possible error of 3 meters, my GPS positioned me about five meters south of the house's garden fence.

The overall photo (nr 1) shows the confluence point right in the centre, the garden being at the right hand side but invisible due to the pile of wood stowed against the tree.

As you can see from the N-E-S-W pictures, it's all trees around, the fence only being visible in the left-hand corner of the North-photo.

Seeing the amount of new houses being build in this area I assume this view will change again within a few years.
