I wonder, has anyone gone sledging on sand from Shara? It might be hard to see, but the snow is striped brown by the Sahara sand which came falling down in the mountain brought by the storm wind during the night.
Going to Abisko on lake Abiskojaure – this was very wet.
In Abisko we missed the right way to STF-hostel and therefor we had to cross the railway and lots of roads which took us a while. Fortunately someone told us that we could go under the big road so at least we didn’t need to cross that.
It felt as Torne Träsk was never ending, and the trail beeing wet and heavy didn’t make it any better.
The dogs seemed to enjoy sleeping on the bare ground. They even found some berries (from last autumn) which they ate.
They seemed to feel secure as the tent was nearby
16/4 second day on Torne Träsk. Since we got up early the trail was much better.
On the 17/4 we felt there was a snow storm coming up
The wind was blowing harder and harder and soon
Monday 18/4 Mixed feelings – the finish is reached at last! A bit sad that the great adventure soon will be over but happy that all went so well. (In the back ground to the right one can see a bit of the yellow Treriks-stone)
