The sun is going to the south while we are moving. It looks like soon there will be the real night.
At 22 July evening we have reached the place of the camping. There are fertile valley, little farms and rivers with salmons. The weather is ideal for fishing – the rain shower. Without any sarcasm.
We didn’t want to place tents in the puddle, so we are seeking for little hotel for the fishermen and fall to sleep. The moving was hard.
The hall of the little hotel is covered with photos of fishermen with noticeable trophies in hands. There is a fishing store, where also fishermen are taking the license for fishing. Every livers are looks same: high hills and water-protecting clothes. At morning we are moving along the river and go up on the mountains. If the computer didn’t lie the temperature is 4 degree Celsium. Autotourism is the perfect method to overwinter the summer.
Behind the passover the weather change entirely.
We have stopped on the gas station before the Swedish borderland.
Another climb in the mountains and here the Sweden verge.
There is a piece in the valleys. In the small town on the coast of the gigantic lake two dealing men in overalls are overloading the fishing equipment on the silver hydroplane.
The weather is perfect and the plane is ready for the flight. With such amount of lakes the aircraft is the best transportation.
The foliage has become more lush in comparison to tough mounts of Overpolar. We have been moving through forest road. The fox have crossed the road with some small creature in the teeth. She isn’t afraid of us, make some overlooks and disappear in bushes.
After the several hundred miters we have took another encounter. The big bird is proudly crossing the road. It looks like the female of the grouse and big as small chicken.
There are not many people in here, so animal are not afraid of them.
We have reached the small, but very comfy caf? called “The Saams Cafe”. It looks like the Swedish one. The wooden house is standing at the lake coast within the bunch of slender birches. The owner is not looks like saamy, but give us the homemade bakery. There is also the souvenir and furniture store.
The nature is saves her primal look, which she has after the last iceberg.
Sometimes you can meet the stormy rivers with waterfalls. We are stops and making shots near the remains of the windmill.
There are also many swamps. This photo helps us to win the one of Grand Jury photo. I have fixed how Sasha shots the swamp.
We have reached the next resting place. This is an amazing location, which looks like hobbits living place. This is the mount with vertical gardens and valley with giant lake, the shattered ground where the cows are pasturing. This is the Sweden village and the reservation.
There is a little funny raft with engine and house for shepherds.
Our nighttime should being at the lake’s beach. The sun is setting down to the horizon by the long projectile.
The coast near the lake is made of stones, and we are spend some time for reaching the place we needed.
