#1: Wiew to the East

(visited by Erkki Ahonen and Helena Ahonen)

31-Mar-2002 -- Whilst driving home after a small skiing trip, we decided to visit a confluence just 10 km from our road. This would become our second confluence (the first: 61°N 17°E).

We drove to Bergsjö and came just a kilometer from the point, which was located almost in the middle of the lake Älgeredsjön. We parked our car, and started to hike through a field by the lakeshore. Luckily the ice was thick, so we could walk "straight on" to the confluence, 62°N 17°E. After some searching we found the spot.

The weather was stunning: the sun was setting, but it was still quite warm (+5 degree Celsius). (Unfortunately the GPS picture turned out to be of quite bad quality!)
