#1: Overview

(visited by Karl Bryk and Heidi Peschl)

25-Jul-2017 -- This is visit number 3 in a sequence of 4 visits made while on holiday in Sweden. The previous is 60N 17E.

Having spent the night near the town of Möklinta we decided after breakfast to head for our next CP. We arrived at 10:45 about 1.2 km as the crow flies from the CP. There was a road that would bring us closer to the CP but there was a no-entry sign so we would have to walk the last part. Since we were in Sweden to hike this was not a problem.

We walked along the road, parallel to the railway line for about a kilometre, then skirted along a lake and then headed into the wood towards the CP, past an old hut that makes an appearance in a previous visitor's report. The CP sits on the top of a large rock elevation. The necessary photos were taken and we headed back to the car.

We arrived back at the car at 12:10 having covered 4.6 km in total. We decided to head straight for 60N 15E.
