I was planning to have a trip, but I didn't have idea where to go. I caught a map of the area and I saw that the confluence 26S 50W is approximately 170km from my city (Joinville), it is very close to an interior road. I proposed to my family the idea, and everybody agreed.

We left Joinville and passed by: Campo Alegre, São Bento do Sul, Rio Negrinho, Mafra and Rio Negro. In Rio Negro we entered in an interior road where we drove about 35 km on unpaved terrain. The confluence was at 300m of the road in the middle of a soy plantation (photo #1). I sought a form of approaching more, arriving to a small cemetery (photo #2). Where we left the car and proceeded walking until the confluence, around 200m (photos #4 and #5). The area is relatively plane, with a mixed of forest and agriculture, forming a very pretty landscape.
