    OK, I dug out some more of my Lapland images ... I hope I do not start to bore you by now!

    1: A third image of Gådoktjåhkkå with Namasj and Ridok in the foreground. Namasj actually used to be some sort of holy mountain for the Sami people. There are lots of sacrificial sites around. I actually camped pretty close to one ;)

    2: Looking into the Rapa delta from Skierffe

    3: Looking straight down from Skierffe (2000 ft drop!), the boulders down there have the size of houses and larger.

    4: Rapadalen again

    5: Rainbow over lake Sitojaure

    6: Sitojaure reflection, I actually took a rowing boat here to get across (almost 3 miles of rowing!).

    7: A short break from rowing ;)

    8: Sunset on Sitojaure

    9: Shortly after sunset.

    10: A change of colour some minutes later.

    11: This is the actual spot from where I took those images (next morning).

    Too many beautiful images to comment separately! (But 2 and 10 are standouts for me)

    Re the last shot...that's about what I'd pack for an overnight stay somewhere. :blushing:

    Looks like a fantastic place - do they do day trips there?
