|Today was one of those days where the walking gods smiled on me....|
|Stepping outside first thing this morning this was the scene that greeted me.|
|It didn't take me long to pack up and head off this morning.|
|I was climbing over that ridge in the shadows.|
|Glancing up the side valleys revealed an alpine wonderland.|
|Kuoperjåkka Emergancy Shelter.|
|There was quite a few impressive waterfalls cascading down the sides of the valley this afternoon.|
|Arriving at some lakes I figured that it was about time to start looking for somewhere to pitch the tent for the night.|
I walked around 17 kilometres and climbed 361 metres on what I’d call an easy-medium grade days walking on the Kungsleden. Over the 18 days of my Kungsleden stroll so far I’ve walked 395.9 kilometres and climbed around 9966 metres. Today’s walk was probably one of the easiest days that I’d had on the my journey and arguably probably the best day that I’d experienced as far as scenery goes I think. There were numerous spots today to camp and the stuga at Sälta would be the spot to stay if you needed a bed for the night. Once again I used Cicerone’s Trekking the Kungsleden guide book along with my GPS topo maps.
