All about us in the open afternoon

On March 14th and 15th I walked in Nuuksio, south of lake Saarijärvi. There were people fishing and skating on the ice.

Today I took a long walk, three hours, going around lake Meiko and lake Vaipo, and visiting lake Vitträsk. The best part was walking across the swamp at Slätmossen, which was still frozen enough to carry a person. The swamps and lakes were flooding, and the path was covered by water in many places. I got somewhat dirty and wet when climbing over a fallen tree. My leg caught and I stumbled into the wet ground, luckily managing to keep the camera off the ground. There is some washing to be done.
