(visited by Nils Daverhog and Eva Daverhog)

09-Jun-2001 -- The place is in a forest. It is about 5 miles from the place where I lived my first 20 years and still spend many weeks every year. My wife Eva and I visited it on a saturday. We came from a junction a quarter of a mile north of the confluence.

We saw some deer running away when we were 200 meters from the place. In this part of the province of Dalsland we have many elks and the last years the wolves have returned. The trees had been cut down perhaps ten years ago but some hundreds of meters away the big trees are left.

The sun was shining and it was warm.

We came 4.05 pm and left 4.25 pm. I took the pictures with a digital camera borrowed from Margareta and Sune Olsson.

The GPS was borrowed from Johan Garcia who told me about confluences on the 5th of June.
