Day2: 22 August, Jiertajavrre - Vuosskeljavrre, 10 km

It rains during the night, but when we wake up at seven is it cloudy and no rain. I make a short excursion in the forest to find some flowers to take a photo of, but without any success. We put our things together and walk back to the reindeer fence, where the track up through the forest to the bare mountain region start. The track seems more visible to us, than the last time walked here. Here and there do the water use the track as a brook, which makes it rather wet. There are recently made small bridges of ribbons over the brooks. The reindeer farmes use small mopeds, we assume the bridges are for them. We struggle our way uphill. At a small marsh do the track fade away, we choose to walk straight across it. Not a very wise decision, it gets deep, and we have to go back. But too late, my friend get stuck and fall when he tries to turn around. With some effort do we get him back up, but drenched. The sun has fortunately started to shine, and it is warm. He will soon be dry again. We now see that the track makes a detour around the marsh. In front of us, along the view of the track, is the pyramid shaped and lone peak Slugga (1279). Behind us is the view of the lake from where we came sometimes be seen from openings in the birch forest. As we ascend do the birch forest become more and more sparse.

Just before where the track leaves the forest do it definitely fade away when reaching the bare mountain region, here do we abandon it and walk through the remaining thin stripe of trees, up to slope towards the valley Vuosskelvagge. One must pass a few stripes of boulder stones, else is it mainly moores. We get a good view towards east, where the lake Bietsavrre is seen. Further up does it get more stone, but it is still very easy to walk here. We walk up on the hill without name, marked with 1016 on the map. From the hill is it almost a 360 degree view. In the south and north consists the view of mountains, with Skanatjåhkkå (1767) as the highest peak in the south. In front of Skanatjåhkkå is the vertical wall of Gäbnasjgåhpe. Beneath are a few small lakes. In the north is it Hallji (1354) that dominates, here as well are a few small lakes. In the front of us, in our direction towards west, are the main lakes, with Vuosskeljavrre as the closest one. Behind the lakes is Unna Atjek (1225), and further away can we see Ahkka. We descend towards the lake Vuosskeljavrre, looking for a suitable tenting site. The terrain has become even more stony, and since we like comfortable tenting sites without stones, is it not easy to find one with our requirements. At the eastern end of the lake is a brook entering it, and there is gravel beach on which others seems to have had their lodging. To us does it seem to be too exposed to water and wind, instead do we choose a somewhat more protected terrace formation upstream. Not a very large place, but grassy and with no stones, and large enough for the tent. The wind is absent, the surface of the lake is glassy. The landscape is admiring it's own beauty. We disturb the mirror image by taking a bath.
