Abisko 2016 pt. 1

During the last week of august I went by train all the way up to a place called Abisko in the northern Sweden. The trip is supposed to take 19 hours (sic) but actually took 21. I reached Abisko at around 15:00 and felt somewhat stressed, although according to my planned route I did not necessarily have to hike all that long the first day. The plan was to hike alone for four days and set up a tent essentially where I liked and focus on photography and enjoying myself.

Having hiked for around two hours I realised that it was impossible to cross a major stream as I had planned. The idea was to head into a valley on the other side of the stream and spend my days up in there, exploring and photographing. Not just a little bit annoyed I eventually settled with the idea of not being able to cross the river. Instead, I would explore my surroundings and eventually found a nice place to set my tent up. This also gave me some time to shoot some pictures before bedtime.
