entrance of Vallevagge is still covered with clouds. Today is it a thin
layer, above is the mountains peaks seen. We take direction with the compass,
and enter the cloud. It is 300 meter up to the entrance at 1100 meters.
The clouds surround us for 200 meters. Below are the clouds slowly dissolving,
the remnants sail away in Tjuoltavagge. The slope is stony, more the higher
up we get. We pass a small waterfall,
above is a hint of the mountain Tjilaktjåkkå (1824m), the second
highest peak in Tarrekaise. The mountains around Vallevagge is otherwise
1300-1500 meters high. If it had been good weather should we walk on Vallespiken,
the hills on the east side of the valley. In the valley is there still
snow, old and with a hard surface. It is easier to walk on the snow, than
on all the stones.
we have to switch to the stones. The brook, Vallebäcken, from the
valley disappear down in a canyon. One must choose the east side to reach
Vallevare, the plateau at the exit of the valley. The west side lead down
to Tarravalley. It is tiring to walk horisontally on a slope. It is down
and up at the feeder streams of Vallebäcken. We fill our waterreservoir
in one of them, because on the map do Vallevare look dry. We surprise some
reindeers, they run away. One of them is white. The tent is placed at a
small pond, without outlet. We do not dare to drink the water. There are
in our garden. We eat them as dessert.
