Gefion using her wip

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The legend says, that the godes Gefion was told that she could take as much land from Sweden as she could plough in one night. She turned here four strong sons into oxes and plowed all night long. As can be seen from a map the lake of Wänern has the same shape as the island Zealand. Now you know why.
