The height difference up to Säkok is 500 meters, now we are well trained
and the weight on the back is reduced. The legs protest anyway, we walk
slowly. Except for the slope are there no problems. Njåtjosvagge
beneath us, is getting filled up with clouds. Tjuolta
on the other side is disappearing. The clouds rapidly climb up the hill
and catch us. No chance to escape. The fog surround us completely, almost
no visibility. By the aid of the compass do we continue towards Säkok.
The ground and stones appear and disappear quietly, no sound. After an
hour do a cairn show up, here we take a break. Waiting and hoping for an
improvement. It is cold. We give up, and continue guided by our friend
Compass. One more hour pass, when suddenly the fog open up for a moment
and show us a steep slope down to the right. The opening is closed.
assume we have Tjeurajaure in the north, and that the slope is south part
of Säkok. If we continue northeast, then we should soon be walking
downhill towards Säkokjåkkå. Very good, exactly what happens.
To our relief are the clouds giving up the embrace. We leave them alone
up there. In the north can we now see the lake Tjeurajaure. We reach Säkokjåkkå
east of Tjeurajaure. A large snowfield cover the brook, a very comfortable
bridge. After the "bridge" do nature offer us a relaxing time. The view
lakes at Pårek and a
gentle slope. The clouds gradually disappear, and we get a nice stroll
through birch forests, lakes, and marshes. Nowadays is there a prepared
track through the marshes, one can pass dry-shod. As usual can one jump
between the stones when "fording" at Pårekjaure, though the stone
are below the water surface. The shore of a small lake without a name,
will be our home for tonight. We get a fantastic sunset, and visitors.
Some reindeers tell us that we have put our tent in their dinner. After
a short discussion do we become friends, and we are allowed to stay over
