Here I would like to publish various short readings which may be useful for navigation. Honestly, I created this category mostly because I want to explain "right/left bank" terminology I use quite often in my trail descriptions. And since it's already here...
Basically, when you are standing at the source of the river and looking downstream, the left bank is to the left of the river and right bank is to the right. This never changes, it doesnt matter which way are you walking or looking. Please keep this in mind when walking upstream.
The same terminology applies to the left/right tributary. When you are standing at the source of the river and looking downstream, the left tributaries join river from the left side and right tributaries from the right side.
Therefore, I recommend to use your own instinct and experience to determine the correct path - using the gpx as a helpful resource, but not following it blindly.
