Short Ski-Trekking (Season Start)
It'll soon become the Easter and we're planning to do
a long ski-trekking tour (about 50 km) with 3-4 days tenting. So
for trainning and getting used to my new skiset, we made a short
ski-trekking during the last weekend. The route is shown in the

It was a clear weather and a blue sky...I'm wainting Johan near at the
gate of "Kungsleden".
Johan went and bought cheese and butter at the STF Abisko Turiststation.
First part of our route was ON the frozen river.This picture was taken
just after waxing the ski.
Sometimes under the ski-trail, we found such kind of scenes, water
streaming under several layers of ice.
On the way toward the Kaarsavagge mountain cabin, we've met only two
women who seemed to be guests in the STF Abisko Turiststation and to
have a day-trip.
We found a old, twisted pine tree. And just before this we looked at a
hawk owl on the top of another pine tree.
I and Johan are sitting this tree. (Larger ones
It was the season opening day at Kaarsavagge's mountain cabin. And the
cabin was almost full with guests, but it was so nice to spend time with
them. Next day we've had companions, one couple those who are living in
Kiruna also, almost whole the way to Bjoerkliden via Laaktatjaakka. It was
so pity that I could not get any pictures at this part...Anyhow to do
mountain skiing/ski-trekking in the mountains is soooooo fun for me!
I'm looking forward to the Easter.
