A hike in Sarek


This site contains a small diary and some pictures of two hikes I made in Sarek National Park, Sweden, in June/July 2008 and in August 2008. The layout is a micro version of Ulf Mjörnmark's sober yet excellent website on his hikes in Sarek and elsewhere. His other pages are worth checking out as well, not in the least those concerning Felisia (på Svenska only). Much credit to him for the fun and information his pages have provided me with and still do.
The contents of this small site are listed below and also in the navigation sidebar that stays fixed next to every page.

"All of the King's horses and all of the King's men
Couldn't pull my heart back together again
All of the physicians and mathematicians too
Failed to stop my heart from breaking in two
" (Travis, The Invisible Band)

Perhaps I will add some diary-text later. I wrote something already but wasn't happy with it.

Links, to some worthwhile sites about Sarek.

Polar cats, rare pictures of domestic cats living near the polar circle.

Tea, tortellini and gas, some rough estimates on the capacity of liquid gas tanks.


Mantras, a pretentious naming for the stuff that gets stuck in my head.
