Wake up several times during the night. The bed is not comfortable. We
start the day at seven thirty. The sun shine, an almost clear and blue
sky. Kåbrek, the small hill with the peak at 1167m, is waiting on
us.It is an easy walk up, the height difference is only 150m. From the
top is the view as good as expected. Njåtjosvagge with its lakes
is clearly visible, small clouds around the mountain peaks make the view
even better. In front of us is the plateau Luottolako, which we visited
1985. Today is the weather much better, than at that time. Further east
is the mountains of Pårte clearly visible. Below is the river in
Njåtjosvagge, it looks like a snake on its way towards east. We descend
from hill, we choose walk on the north side of the lake. If we had we time,
then it we could walk up on Tsatsa from here. Time is running.
lunch do we start our walk to the lake Puoites in the north end of Tarrekaise.
First we change to shorts, the weather is beautiful. The part to Låptåvagge
is rather stony. Tjuoltajåkkå, the outlet from Låptåvakkjaure
and Kåbrekjauratj, seems easy to cross. But it is deep between the
stones close to the opposite shore. My friend slip, and get the boots full
of water. We take a break, he change socks, and let the boots to dry in
the sun for a while. The sun and wind will dry the wet socks, hanging on
the backpacking. The slope Tjuoltakårså is fantastic, completely
flat to walk on. The brook is now already far below us. In the distance
is Tarrekaise seen. Soon do also the sight of Tjuoltavagge
appear. From Tjuoltakårså is it downhill, partly through low
osier. We pass an area with nice ferns. We can now see Puoites. We follow
the small brook from the lake, and reach it after another hour. The evening
is cold, the sun creates long shadows.
Disaster, my friend has no more sweets.
