Day 4


July 14, 2005 8:57 AM, Pieljekaise Cabin (O1546111, N7361725)

I did not sleep very well last night. Finally I went up and packed my things at 8 AM. I am having some tea before i continue.

The thermometer showed 3ºC this night. I was probably below freezing above the tree line

July 14, 2005 11:53 AM, Luvtávrre (O1542867, N7357550)  12ºC Ù

Taking a short break just outside the Pieljekaise National Park. It will be freeze dried pasta with banana today The segment this morning was rather uninteresting. It was a rocky and tricky trail through the birch forest.

July 14, 2005, 7:55 PM, Badasjåkkå Cabin (O1530751, N7353667)

I arrived at Adolfström at 2 PM. I met a female hiker in the downhill slope just before the village. She had started in Hemavan a week ago and was heading for Abisko. Behind her on the trail were three guys with fishing equipment keeping a brisk pace.

Yesterday i noticed that the sole on my right boot had started to come loose at the toe. Just to make sure, I bought some Liquisole when I bought some provisions at the store in Adolfström.

I continued south without further ado through the forest along lake Iraft. I met a day hiker on my way to Bäverholm

My right boot detoriated fast, the sole started to come loose, and the Liquisole glue came handy. It worked ok even if the surfaces were dirty.

The bridge over the Lais River was temporary repaired, and it did not look very assuring. But I got over in good order.

The trail was rocky through the forest. I arrived at the cabin at about 7 PM. I will have dinner here in the cabin and pitch my tent outside tonight.
