Winter Peaks

I began the ascent early in the morning. Halfway up the mountain I saw something in the distance. A couple of reindeers were trying to find something to eat, this high up in a completely frozen landscape. They were probably waiting for spring to arrive.

Me on the other, I was happy to experience full winter conditions. This time of year, in the last days of April, it’s certainly not a given.

As I was getting closer to the peak it started to snow and I could only see a few meters in front of me. I got my stove going and had myself a much needed warm cup of tea.

After a while I could see some faint contours appear and soon the snowfall had passed. The spectacular snow-covered peaks of Sarek were shimmering like diamonds in front of me. I was close to tears.
