#1: The Confluence from 15 m

(visited by Rainer Mautz)

19-Nov-2012 -- The story starts at 43°S 147°E and continues from 36°S 149°E.

After staying one week in Sydney for the IPIN (Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation) conference, I sent my suit back home and hit the road again. I cycled northwards along the coast and on the evening of the second day, I reached the town of Gloucester, which is 3.9 km beeline from the confluence point. I was in a bit of a rush to reach this confluence point during the daylight. So I just had a quick refill of water and went on to reach the point.

At a distance of 1.3 km, I turned into a small county road and parked my bike at a distance of 100 m as the nearest point from the road-network was reached. The confluence is on an inclined meadow on a foot of a little mountain. The exact location is in a canyon. The water has washed away the soil at some parts such that the barren rock surface can be seen.

After visiting the confluence, it was time to find a camp for the night. Just on the opposite side of the valley, I found a good spot with a direct view to the confluence, in ca. 500 m distance. It turned out to be a wonderful camp (although a thunderstorm hit me in the night).
