A perfect day
Wednesday: Probably not a tactical good idea to go for a mountain hike the same day that I felt better for the first time in two months. But tactics is not my best quality and besides, I just wanted to go out. Plain and simple. I wanted to continue enjoying the beautiful weather.
So, I drove to Drageskaret to hike Årvikveten. I really, really looked forward to it. Karma seemed quite happy too…
The first hill had very little snow and when there was a little more of it, we could enjoy footprints left by other hikers. I suspected they would only go to Svedehornet, and I was right.
Hiking in low terrain shoes was probably not smart either, but I figured that my socks would keep me warm. After all, they did do just that when I went through the ice in Øyraelva river (week 3).
I felt truly happy for the first time in a good while and my camera ran hot.
I like the hike from Drageskaret. Once done with the first hill, one can hike for hours on this plateau and there are many opportunities for a round-trip hike.
As the snow got deeper, my feet stayed warm. Now I know the benchmark for the various types of woolen socks!
Eventually, we reached the top. I got my pictures and Karma got treats.
And then – time for a selfie.
Upon return, the “interesting” question was if we could return to the car without using the headlamp.
Thanks to the snow, we had enough visibility.
A very, very nice hike. So, how long would this “strike of fortune” in terms of health last?
Trip statistics: 6,8km, 470 vertical meters, 2h:00m
