20-Oct-2000 -- According to the
large-scale maps of Norway, as well as the MapQuest
database, this confluence should be wet, but earlier this year, after
carefully checking on a Norwegian map server
I realized that it avoids this fate by a narrow margin, due to being
located on a small peninsula.
Now, some months later, I had a business trip to this part of the
country, so I decided to try to locate the confluence as well.
I flew from Oslo to Kristiansund on the west coast of Norway, and picked
up a rental car for a trip along RV 70 (Norwegian highway nr 70).
About 37 km from the airport, the highway passes within less than a kilometer
from the confluence point, and according to the map server, there should
be a narrow dirt road leading even closer. I found the dirt road, which
was open, it turned out to pass by a couple of farm houses, before
ending in a cul-de-sac.
At this point I grabbed my GPS, and started jogging towards the
confluence point. The tip of the peninsula is located just a few meters
from the actual spot, so I took a series of photographs at this point,
and then used Panavue's Image assembler to turn them into a panorama
I also took the obligatory shot of the GPS (photo #2), before
jogging back to the car so I could continue my trip to Sunndalsøra.
