    What an experience.
    I like each and every one of your photos (and have actually started with your other thread, to click on the link at the bottom of that one to continue right away and am now commenting at the end of all the photos). And did you go there ALL ON YOUR OWN? With NO ONE ELSE but the reindeer and elk for your company?

    I have never been up there, only my father and brother were there many, many years ago, also hiking, but that must have been back in the late seventies or so. They also brought home some impressive photos (my father took those at the time).

    Late summer, since the hike went quite through different altitudes, mid-day temperatures would vary between slightly above freezing point to 15 degC. One afternoon in a low valley on a sunny day even above 20 degC.

    Mornings and evenings could be cruelly cold though, even in the valleys I had ice on the tent sometimes.

    Nice shots. I think the last one might actually be a moose, though, unless you call it by a different name, in which case, I'm an idiot. :lmao: Anyway, excellent work. :)
