In a forest near Sonkari, Vesanto.

The point on a topographic map: [1]



I was spending the weekend here in 62,26, and this hashpoint happened to be located within 20 kilometres in a decently accessible place. I decided to go driving in the afternoon, park to the nearest convenient point and walk to the point. Should be an easy feat and a nice excuse to explore the outdoors.

I tried to take the shortest route via a field road, but it ended up being so uneven and soft that I did not dare to drive through it. Had the road surface been frozen, I might have been able to make it, but as it was, I reckoned that the risk of getting stuck was too high. I then reversed a couple hundred metres and took a longer route which was nice and safe. The rest of the drive went without issues. Rasputitsa had made some stretches of the unpaved road considerably bumpy but not too bad. It is a yearly occurrence, and I am used to it.

I parked the car to a convenient wide part off the final forest road. I could pretty easily walk to the hashpoint and back, though there were some snowy or wet areas and more or less loose rocks that I needed to be careful with. Almost all snow had already melted during the warm days of the spring. In fact, it was a rather warm (around 12 °C) and sunny day, and the nature looked beautiful after the long winter. I could not resist taking a lot of photos.
