Day 5


July 15, 2005 08:51AM, Badasjåkkå Cabin (O1530751, N7353667) Ù

I pitched my tent out side the cabin and had a good night’s sleep. I feel really refreshed. After a breakfast consisting of peanuts, dextrose, and some tea I will continue south.

The sky is a bluish grey all around the horizon. There is a light breeze and perfect weather for hiking.

July 15, 2005, 1:30 PM, Sjnultjie Cabin (O1525789, N7345746) 15ºC Ù

The hike uphill through the birch forest to the tundra above the tree line went well. It wasa light breeze and no mosquitos to be seen. After a while the trail went into the birch forest again. And that’s where the mosquitos were hiding. Tons of them!

At last I arrived at the Sjnultjie Cabin. You have to take a spur west about a quarter of a mile to get to the cabin. It is located at the winter trail. The cabin is built primarily for winter usage, and it is obvous for a couple of reasons. One of them that there is no water nearby. You have to walk down to Suoluojávrrie for water.

I am having lunch here in the cabin (pasta with chicken) before I continue. I hope to  reach the Rävfall Cabin tonight.
