It's the season of frosty weather and thaw taking turns, changing from snowing to fully sunny days. I hope temperatures to drop back below zero still, allowing some good skiing to come before the snow melts away.
As I,ve mentioned earlier, in February and March I'm quite busy with guiding on sled dog trips. Not making much knives at all, as I'm trying to spend as many free days as possible skiing in the woods and fells.
Here's some sceneries and such of my daily chores since the previous post.
Can't really complain about this kind of view from your "office".
This hazel grouse trusted in me not spotting it. It was a safe bet though, as the hunting season is in the autumn. I skied a circle around it, only 2 meters away at the closest.
Willow grouse hunting is on 'till the end of March up here.
Youngest member of our family, 6 months old nordic spitz Kumu, being a clever guy here....
When I knocked on the window he obviosly was pretending just to be sighting up there.....
But didn't take long to see what was the real reason to jump up there.
Watching a young dog enjoying the outing always makes you happy. Animals have better ability to live in the moment. Is it a gift or an inability if you compare to us?
Quite a lot of snow at some places still. This was taken on a skiing trip in Lemmenjoki national park. My pole is about 150cm, and didn't touch the ground yet on this hillside
Benefits of the winter; crossing creeks, rivers, lakes, and marshes is pretty easy.
Peaceful view, open wilderness as far as you can see.
Nice place for an open wilderness hut in Lemmenjoki national park.
