In a forest in Retuniemi, Juuka.

The point on a topographic map: [1]



I was driving towards the north with my girlfriend with a rental car, and this hashpoint was so conveniently close to the route that I could not just pass it. It was located only 35 metres from a small road that is not visible on OpenStreetMap and only 1.3 kilometres from highway 6. I drove along the road past the hashpoint, turned the car around and parked it on a widening of the road. I walked to the closest point on the road and then the last 35 metres to the hashpoint. Meanwhile my girlfriend waited in the car. There was quite a bit of snow, mostly some 50–60 cm, but this time at +1 °C it was wet snow which did not get in my boots or trousers. At one point I stepped in a hole where there was a metre of snow, but I did not care much. I quickly reached the hashpoint, took a few photos and left.
