(visited by Ross Finlayson)

26-Jul-2016 -- Driving south from Estonia to Latvia, I visited this Degree Confluence Point, in a commercial forest, less than 2 km south of the border. I parked beside the road at 58.00246°N 25.00917°E, about 600 m ('as the crow flies’) from the point.

I then walked westward along a straight forest road (atop a berm), then south into an overgrown forest clearing. The point lies in a thin section of the forest, just west of this clearing. The forest here is quite pretty, with moss-covered ground (but, unfortunately, lots of annoying biting flies).
