In a forest, rather easily accessible and probably swarming with mosquitoes.

Plans

I will visit South Karelia with my father, and visiting this hashpoint will not require a huge detour. It should be easily accessible especially if we can drive along the trail that leads to a former logging area. Even if we cannot, we can walk the half-kilometre distance from the big road.

This, along with 2020-05-10 62 29, will be a Double Hash if we can reach both. And we definitely can unless we run out of time for some reason or something catastrophic happens.

Expedition

After visiting 2020-05-10 62 29 and later our relatives in South Karelia, we came here before heading for Joensuu again. This hashpoint was more interesting than the previous one.

We arrived at the intersection where the trail branched off the road. It was indeed drivable by car, though not for the faint-hearted or for those with off-road incapable cars. There were bumps, potholes, rocks, loose tree branches and little saplings on the trail, but we could manage with all of them until we were stopped by a fallen tree. That would not move easily and we did not want to drive over it. We were almost as close to the hashpoint as we could get to by car anyway, so we continued on foot.

After walking some 75 metres through the forest we arrived at the hashpoint. It was located in a beautiful spruce forest with little underbrush. The forest was dense enough that spruce tops blocked almost all direct sunlight, and so it was rather dim even in the middle of the day. We took a few pictures for proof and left soon thereafter. We still had a long drive ahead of us.
