We wake up in fog. This is one more cold day, 5 degrees. The fog slowly
dissolves, and at ten is it clear enough to start the day. In front of us is a grassy
flat land. The small hill Luoto (1187) to the west is barely visible.
The main obstacle is Vartojåkåtj, but it is not a serious one, it is
easy to cross at the border of Padjelanta. We keep the height 800
meters towards the lake Rapukjauratj (814). The fog has completely
disappeared, there remains clouds high up. Not high enough to allow the perfect view
into Koupervagge, but it makes us to take a long lunch.
areas are covered with melting snow, which makes it wet. When
approaching the lake does it get stony. The lake is still mostly frozen. Suddenly
is fog attacking from the west, like a big rolling stone. After a few
minutes is the visibility less than twenty meters, and a heavy rain falls. No
descent place on which to put up the tent. We let the compass guide us west
towards the valley of Låddejåkkå. Some hours later are we
below the clouds on the north side of the valley. The slope is covered with
small osiers and dwarf birches. In the middle of the valley can we
distinguish the river. In an open place in the osier and at a brook, do we prepare
for the night. The rain keeps falling. Sweet home.
