#1: The Confluence from 10 m distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz and Elionora)

30-Jul-2017 -- This is the third out of 13 reports reaching confluence points in Finland. The story starts from 61°N 28°E and continues from 61°N 27°E.

We parked our car at a distance of only 49 m at a T-intersection of a minor road and a private access road to a residential plot. In Finland, the residential houses are spread all over the country. Moreover, most Finnish families own a summer-house in the country side. All these houses have their own access roads. As a consequence, confluencing becomes quite easy, because there is always a drivable road within a couple of hundred metres. However, this fact only holds for Southern Finland.

We walked over uneven and swampy terrain. Even though the distance was so short, it took us nearly 5 minutes to reach the exact location. The confluence is located in a mixed forest with undergrowth and fallen logs covered with moss. Just another 15 m further, there is another track and on the other side there is an open agricultural field.
