I think it went wandering off down yonder

According to the weather forecast, Thursday and Friday should be a bit colder days, -2...-5 °C. So the winter is not quite yet over, even though it has been feeling like spring for some time.

If this would be the end of the winter it would be very early, 1-2 months before usual. Looking at the photographs taken in February 2013 one gets quite a different feeling of winter.

Today I walked in north parts of Nuuksio, starting from Yli-Takkula, walking to Saarijärvi and then south to near Myllyjärvi and Vääräjärvi, and then south of lake Hauklampi towards west, and back to lake Saarijärvi via Mustakorpi.

There were some paths trodden by people, and some made by roe deer or moose. The snow had frozen a bit but didn't really carry a person, which didn't matter much as in most places there was only 5 cm or so of snow.

I walked for two hours, and felt good afterwards. It was probably a good idea to rest and not take a long walk yesterday.
