The time with autumn foliage is very short here. So when I saw that the trees have reached their colourful high, I decided to go for a short cycling trip. Here are a few impressions I took with my mobile phone from a short overnight cycling trip in the Pöyrisjärvi wilderness area.

When I said, “Last X-Country Skiing for the Season”, I didn’t mean last skiing trip. Since the polar day started a few days ago I was eager to go for a short skiing trip under the midnight sun.

The snow conditions during this winter have been great, with the thick snow cover still providing plenty of snow. Just a few days ago the snow cover was still between 60cm (south slopes) and 80cm (north slopes) in Hetta, and the ice cover of lake Ounasjärvi still is around 75cm. Yet, according to the weather forecast tonight is the last night with minus degrees and during daytime the thermometer is expected to rise above 10°C. Thus the snow might disappear fast now. Considering this forecast today I went for my (most likely) final x-country skiing trip this season. Like yesterday I skied up the summer hiking trail to the summit of Pyhäkero.
