We have abounded the Overpolar. The sun just started to set. Our stop was on the coast of the lake. There was a bit of cold tonight, but the rising sun has quickly warmed the air and the earth. We climbed on the top of the mountain. It was somewhere near 600 above the level of sea.
First the route was leading through the wet forest. You should remain cautious there. After a while the forest has ended and the path has leads us through the Alpinish-muluse. Unexpectedly the way was restricted by the small horizontal snowhill. There was a little stream in it.
The water has penetrated the snow wall and created a tunnel, through which the sunlight is falling.
We have used it and make a little photo session inside this little Ice Age.
Soon we have revealed that this snow is sky-blue on the lights way.
The water warm has created the enchanting teeth on the snow surface.
The iceberg should be melted till the end of summer, but there is a lot of snow even if today is July 24.
Then the route is moving up through the grass and rocks.
The Norway is just after this big plateau.
There is a view from the flat peak on the tundra with numberless lakes and swamps.
Down the cliff after the big stone we have noticed the female deer with two offspring. I decided to shot here closely.
The deers have proved their reputation of not-too-domestic animals. The herd has come quickly and has climbed up to us. There they have stopped and star gaze at us with loud sounds. Especially impressive were the big males with spreading horns.
For some reason we have retreated to the pyramid of stones. But deers didn’t plan to attack us. So they gazed a little bit more and then continue their own circle raid (as it should be – counterclockwise) on the steep slope.
Everything happened very quickly. The deers are moving on the stone and swamps agile, easy and more elegant, than through the asphalt roads.
At the end I have made the photo of the herd. There are more than hundred members (you can close up the photo). Many of them are carrying the red markers and the collars.
The way back we have diversified with descent of snow.
From the inside the snow is covered with dust, which is came here with wind.
The weather was great. You can do like lizards – climb on the stone and warm up.
After the go down we have hardly take one’s leave with the reserve and moving to the well-equipped Swedish camping.
The day was warm and sunny. We have rented the comfy wooden house with 200 crones.
The camping got a small swimming pool where everybody having a good time.
The rest of the crews were gathered on the lawn with two ranks.
The sun is setting very long and it’s rays has made the lake golden. The same happened with other stuff.
I have revealed a few new and hearing-similar Swedish words.
Every language got similar meaning with words “DUSH”(shower) and “DAM”(female) .
