Day6: 26 August, Skarja - Lulep Låvdakruvtasj (Guohpervagge), 16 km

It is dripping blood. The blood come from two small holes on the finger tip of my right middle finger, as if a snake or lemming has biten me. The skin on finger tip is red. I have not noticed anything, and can not remember any incident during the breakfast on the rocks. The best cleaning method is to let it drip for a while, and then let the clean fresh water in the brook wash it. After that procedure we are ready to meet the day. The sun is still with us, but thin high clouds warn for bad weather. Nothing to do about that, it is part of the life in Sarek. To begin with do we walk along the brook, then we meet an area with osier, which make us to choose a path higher up on the slope. It is like walking in a park, mainly on grassy meadows. We soon reach the entrance to Algavagge. We can not look into the valley, for that is the slope into it too high, but Ahkatjåhkå (1974) is looking down at us. We are looking down at some persons that ford the brook fram Algavagge. Once over they return back, and then they repeat the procedure.They must be out exercising fording a streaming brook. Looking up can we see that the sun is gone. A strong wind appear, fortunately from behind. My friend has a watch that can measure pressure and therefore a rough altitude. The pressure has not dropped yet, and it seems stable. We pass an almost dry brook surrounded of gravel, in which a beautiful Starry saxifrage grow. The brook from Sjielmajiegna is modest, and spread into many pieces, and finds it's way on a broad gravel bed. Otherwise do one walk on dry flat grassy meadows. We reach the highest point in the valley, the water shed.

This is the birth of Guohperjåhkå, which from here depart both towards east and west. There is a huge delta landscape in the valley, and the origin of this is the water shed glacier (Vattendelarglaciären) on the opposite side of the valley. A few kilometers further west is the peak Guohper (1686), where the valley become more narrow, and turn towards northwest. This means that we must walk closer to the jåhk, we even walk in dry parts of the jåhk, since this is easier. Though at one place is it too quicksand like, and we have to walk back again to avoid  it. After Guohper is a very long stony area, stretching from the peak down to the jåhk. The stones are densely packed,  it is a flat stone floor. The place is called Juovvabahke, "the place with large stones in the middle of the valley". The valley open up, and we now see the open and less alpine high land of Padjelanta. Njahke (1348) is the last outpost peak, before Njahke is the small valley Nasasvagge. Around Guohperjåhkå are many marshes, which one should avoid. We end up in a dead end, it is wet, and the many deep channels force us to walk further away from Guohperjåhkå. Now the water instead come from above, it starts to rain. At a small brook, not far from  Lulep Låvdakruvtasj do we find a place for the night. Bluegrey, cold clouds are coming from the valley, dissolve, and gather together again at Luvddo (1187) in the west. We have a rudimentary wash in the brook. I have forgotten about my finger tip, but it has returned back to the normal pale colour. I have survived.
