This week I joined some friends to the Kuninkaanlaavu (see picture at the bottom) with the goal to end-process some semi-delicious makkara over the open fire. This laavu is located on Santavaara, which from Rovaniemi is just a few kilometers upstream the Ounasjoki river.

Standing up on Santavaara I got interested in comparing some images from last year’s autumn (first picture), when I have also been up there for some makkara-processing …

I was up there with my family yesterday! That wasn’t you leaving with all the kids was it?
No, we were there on Tuesday evening already. Hope you enjoyed the lovely view, it’s really a beautiful spot up there!
