Twenty-five Years Ago On My Scandinavian Mountains Walk

Camp by Lakavatnet in Blafjella-Skjaekerfjella National Park

On this day in 1992 I was having a rest day at Abisko at the northern end of the Kungsleden on my Scandinavian Mountain Walk. It was the 79th day of the walk and I'd walked 2008 kilometres. In a weeks time I'd finish the walk.

Camp in Tjakjavagge on the Kungsleden

The weather had been wet and windy for much of the previous month but I had had some fine days and some splendid camps. The temperatures were colder now with frosts at night and autumn colours were starting to appear.

Note: the pictures are from Fuji Velvia transparencies photographed on a lightbox with my Sony a6000 camera and Sony E 30mm macro lens. My camera gear for the trip consisted of Nikon F801 and FM2 SLRs, Nikon, 24mm, 28-70mm, and 70-210mm lenses, Cullman tripod, and CCS cases. Total weight 3.9kg.
