21-Jun-2001 -- My wife and I and another couple made a weekend trip up to the swedish mountains. We visited 3 national parks: Tofsingdalen, Sonfjallet and Hamra and 3 confluences and this was the first confluence.

It was a rainy day and we came late in the evening after driving more than 4 hours. The place is in a big forest between Lima and Rorbacksnas in the province of Dalarna. The roads were wet and very slippery and we had to drive slowly. We parked 500 m west of the point and went across boggy ground and the last part was rather steep until we reached the level.

Facing north and west we had the highest parts (Jallkleven 709 meters) and downhill eastwards a peat moss. Due to the thick and rainy clouds it was rather dark at 9PM.
