I am too certain of the measure of these days

Here are some more photographs from last weekend. I haven't had time to process any of the newer photographs. Spring has advanced quite a lot within this week.

Yesterday I went with the two older daughters to Nuuksio, to the north part, east of lake Saarijärvi. There is a parking place at Yli-Takkula, and from there one can walk via paths to the south shore of Saarijärvi.

Near the south corner of Saarijärvi are two places listed as worth seeing in the Espoo guide to nature. (In Finnish, "Saarijärven silokallio" and "Espoon korkein kohta".)

We visited both places. The smooth rock at the lake shore was nothing really remarkable, and the highest point of Nuuksio wilderness area wasn't that remarkable either at 114,5 meters above sea level. By the way, the height is usually given as 114,2 meters, but there has been new measurement since 1.12.2012, and the height is now 30 cm higher than it used to be.
