After the very warm May, snow has rapidly disappeared. Much more, since weeks there has been hardly any precipitation, making the ground very dry. In fact, since days a forest fire warning is in place (for the entire Finland, btw.). Thus, making a camp fire is not possible currently. Good that we didn’t catch fish at Luovuomajärvi last night, when I went there fishing with some friends. Despite not grilling fish (or any other food) at the lake, we spent a nice evening sitting at the lake, watching and listening to birds, and enjoying the polar day.
After my recent one week skiing trip to Porojärvi, it seemed that the weather would allow for yet another short skiing trip in the Enontekiö area. As I haven’t visited Hannukuru during this season, the sunny spring weather suggested that – almost as a tradition – this could be the destination for the season’s last skiing trip. When going there, it appeared reasonable to also take a day to ski up Outtakka and have some fun with downhill skiing as well ..
