(visited by Juris Lavendels and Linda Beinare)

06-Jul-2003 -- Third point this day, but this time not so easy as previous points. Access by map look simple enough, but on reality not so. First after apparently long rain, small road, who lead to point, was in big puddles and covered with very slippery clay and mud, so we decided to leave car and go couple of km’s by foot. But also that isn’t easy, swarms of blood hungry midges attack all the time. But biggest disappointment was after we can’t find bridge (or ruins of old one) over river, look like there is simple error in map.
