Caution! This page still needs some cares for pictures because some pictures are dark.
First Day (29 Mar.)
We got off the train at Abisko Oestra station and these are what we're taking whole the turing.
The turing started with "waxing" on the skis, because the snow on the lake became soft-icy due to the warmness in the pervious days.
We took a "pulka(little sledge)" for packing, foods and tenting materials. Johan would pull this packing sledge whole the way, but this day it became snow-blowing weather under the way and I had troubles on my foot and skis, so he should take care of both me and sledge!
I took this picture while we had a break.
Behind us we could look at the whole view of Noujlla/Abisko.
Second Day (30 Mar.)
This is our first day's tent place, like a south-facing terrace.
Anyway Johan seems to be very active!
The weather became much better than the previous day, but...
Soon we met the snow-blowing. This shot was taken several tens minutes before the weather changing.
The opposite side of the lake, around Bjoerkliden area, nothing could be seen.
We've been skiing toward Jieprenjokk where we've thought as the next tent place.
We've sometimes taken coffebreaks on the way.
Along the shore we found many small waterfalls.
At the tent place on the second day. We found the nice place on a small island about 2km distance from Jieprenjokk, facing to the nortside mountain of the lake.
Third Day (31 Mar.)
This day we decided to leave the lakeside and go up to the mountain.
In the morning, at the tent place.
Most of the way toward the mountain tends to go up, so we prepared the "stighudar(climbing skin)" under the skis and so on.
It was soooo nice weather, blue sky and sunshine, and in the forest we met many ptarmigan(ripor), hawk owls(hoekugglor) and wolverine(jaerv)s footmarks.
From the hills we could look at the mountain panorama, Kaisepakte, Lapporten and mountains standing around the lake (larger 1 2 3).
We've reached to the lappish cot(kaata) on the hill and inside the cot we had a lunch.
Before searching the tent place, we went up to a hill.
Last Day (01 Apr.)
We did another "toptur" again at the highest top on the long peninsula in the lake.
