#1: The confluence point view to the East

(visited by Rainer Mautz)

28-Sep-2003 --

On that chilly autumn Sunday I decided to follow my hobby and do some biking. Actually, there is a confluence in Columbus right next to my home. But in order to exercise a bit, I decided to ride my bike one confluence further north. I started at 6 a.m. and rode 102 km on the road to the town Bycurus. After having a second breakfast I biked another 25 km to the confluence point. Just following very nice little roads I got to the point to a distance of 350 m by road, then I could ride on a little path between a field and the forest as close as 80 m. Here, I parked my bike and hiked through the dense forest. In 30 m distance from the point, I saw these astonishing mushrooms on that fallen tree (picture #5). Reaching the confluence, I was quite lucky that the sun came out and I was able to shoot the confluence pictures. Since my digital camera was stolen recently, I had to put up with an old single-use black and white camera, which had been lying around in my home quite a while.

Coming back from the confluence, I wanted to take a picture of some locals. But all I got to see when I reached the road again were some dogs going after me. I could escape with my bike, but wasn’t able to take a picture. There were no people outside, so I finally took picture #6, when a car passed.

Of course I had to ride back home. On my way back I came through Marion and Delaware and at 8:30 p.m. I got back to Columbus, after a hard but great 264 km (164 miles) biking-day.
