#1: The Confluence from 10 m distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz and Elionora)

30-Jul-2017 -- This is the 12th out of 13 reports reaching confluence points in Finland. The story starts from 61°N 28°E and continues from 63°N 25°E.

After a drive of one hour from 63°N 25°E, we reached the end of an access road to the shores of Lake Keitele. The remaining distance to the confluence was 130 m, which we were able to cover partially on a forest track.

We found the confluence point in a pine forest with a blueberry and cowberry groundcover. The confluence was marked by a huge boulder, covered with moss and lichen.

After the confluence visit, we went down to the shore of Lake Keitele, which was in just 30 m distance. Without knowing, we took exactly the same picture of the lake as the previous visitors. This confluence had not been visited for 15 years.
