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.
After the relaxing cycling trip two weeks ago, I wanted to once again take my bike and head into the Pöyrisjärvi Wilderness Area. And pretty much as two weeks before the aim was to do some camping and fishing – just this time at lake Retkajärvi.
Spring has definitely arrived in the past days. The first days with plus degrees and wind has thrown the snow from the trees, and changed the landscape’s color. With a friend we took some Fell-Skiers and went to Kalmakaltio for a short skiing trip, to enjoy the warmth of the spring sun, off any maintained skiing tracks.
Like in the past few years, also this year I was planning to go for a hike during autumn time.

I strongly felt the urge to go for a hike a couple of weeks ago, so I decided, as so often in the past years, to hike in – or actually through the Pöyrisjärvi wilderness area. Once again. With a friend we enjoyed a wonderful hike, including the last summerly days of this year, as well as the first snowfall, which delighted us toward the end of our hike. We started in Hetta, came by Pöyrisjärvi, and ended our hike in Kalmkaltio, in the east of the Pöyrisjärvi wilderness area.
