Day 1 – March 23rd 2018

After driving around some to find a trail head with reasonably decent parking space, I finally started the hike from Aspradi along the road to Stradovuoni at 1:30PM. Going for approximately 1.5 hours, mostly on gravel yet some dirt roads and paved stretches, took me to Kornos picnic area where I could sit in the…Read more Day 1 – March 23rd 2018

Day 26- August 22nd 2017

06:55 Unna Reitas cabin I woke up a little over an hour ago, pleasantly enough to the first beam of sunlight! Fantastic feeling to get outside and greet the morning sun at the elevation, instead of wiping the tent dry from rain drops as I've become accustomed to. So grateful for this beautiful morning!!! Funny…Read more Day 26- August 22nd 2017

Day 24 – August 20th 2017

10:20 Kebnekaise station Wow, what a breakfast!!! Waking up in time to be there at 06:00 when they opened was a non issue, I frankly didn't sleep very well or much at all.

Day 22 – August 18th 2017

08:00 Camp in center of Kaskasavagge The night here in Kaskasavagge was cold and comfortable, what a difference when not having to make an effort to just keep the equipment dry.

06:10 Camp at Hukejaure cabin Sitting in my tent after waking up early and just enjoying the sun shining down on me and slowly warming the air inside here.

07:15 Camp at the most northern small lake in the valley west of Unna Ruskkas It's been a cold night, I've been wrapped up in my sleeping bag wearing t-shirt and socks and still never got really warm. The wind and rain stopped at some point during the second part of the night and it…Read more Day 19 – August 15th 2017
