27-Мар-2016 – Отдыхаем после посещения точки 68°N 35°E в гостинице, обедаем, закупаем продукты на поезд. После обеда подъезжает машина, грузимся, и в путь. Через час подъезжаем к повороту на Оленегорск, поворачиваем на трассу Е105 (проходит от Норвегии через Россию и Украину в Крым) в направлении Мончегорска. Через 20 км съезжаем с трассы к 25 километру (район Мончегорска), останавливаемся на повороте.

К слиянию идут четыре человека. Двое на лыжах, двое пешком. Температура воздуха выше нуля, но снег не прилипает к лыжам. Те, кто идёт пешком, местами проваливаются в снег по колено и больше. Расстояние от парковки оставляет 750 метров. Есть четвёртое посещение! Едем в Оленегорск к поезду. Через 2,5 дня будем дома.


27-Mar-2016 – We had а little rest at the hotel after visiting 68°N 35°E confluence point, had lunch and bought some food to eat in the train. After the lunch a car arrived, we loaded it up and set off. In an hour we got at a turn to Olenegorsk town and turned onto the E105 route (it starts in Norway and runs along Russia and Ukraine to Crimea) leading to Monchegorsk town. After 20 km we turned left into a suburban district of Monchegorsk, called “The 25th km”.

We were four and we all went together to the confluence point. Two of us went skiing, the others went on foot. The temperature was above zero, but the snow did not stick to the skis. The people who were going on foot constantly fell in the snow up to their knees or even deeper. The distance from the place where we had left the car to the confluence point was 750 meters. The fourth visit had been done. Then we drove to Olenegorsk to take the train. After 2.5 days we arrived home.
