(visited by Karl Bryk and Heidi Peschl)

11-Aug-2016 -- This is visit number 4 in a sequence of 7 visits made while on holiday in Sweden. The previous is 59N 15E.

We had spent the evening before in the Föllingern Hotell and decided after a long and lazy breakfast to walk around Föllingen lake. With a few detours this turned out to be a walk of 15 km. Nothing compared to our stages on the Bohusleden trail at the start of our holiday! We timed our return to the car perfectly as torrential rain started just after we had got into the car.

We decided to flee the rain and head for CP 58N 16E. By the time we got there the sun was shining and we had a beautiful drive along side of the lake to the CP. We parked the car about 30 metres from the CP and, contrary to some previous visitors, decided to brave the thicket and made our way to the CP. As it turned out it was pretty easy.

The usual photos were taken, we returned to the car and continued our road trip toward 57N 16E.
