Dark thick clouds cover the sky. One of our plans is to walk up on
Lanjektjåkkå from Nasasvagge. It is said to be rather easy
from that side. We hope for better weather and leave for walking up the
slope into Nasasvagge. Halfway up to Nasasvagge is herd of reindeers. A

A friendly person has left dead osier to dry in the hut. We soon have a
warming fire, we hang our wet things around it. It is good to be
indoor in a weather like this, we can hear the rain knocking on the door.
We do not let it in. (In November 2001 was the hut removed, it was in a
