Spring-Winter has arrived!

We are now moving into a beautiful time of year called Spring-Winter! We have eight seasons up here in Lapland, a lot of people will tell you that the Spring-Winter is the best.

It is the time of year one can do most winter activities, such as snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoe hiking, snowboarding, ice fishing, long hikes, and actually have the feeling of spring in the air. The snow becomes excellent because of the slight thaw during midday and the frost during the nights. The sun is bright and out long, long days! We gain about an hour of sunlight every week and soon the sun will not go down at all. Ultimate freedom! Spring-Winter usually lasts until May so yeah us ๐Ÿ™‚

Today is a beautiful sunny day, the birds are chirping and the squirrels are out. I live in a beautiful place!

The pictures are from our last snowmobile trip. The sun was bright and on top of the mountains you could see endless forests. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ

Do you see the imprint in the snow on one picture? That is from a bird. They hide under the snow to stay warm. When they then hear us coming they will take off. This bird left wonderful wing imprints in the snow! A friend of mine called it ‘poetry in the snow’.
