Sarek 2001

In July 2001 I went for a trip to Sarek, Swedens most untouched and 'wild' national park. It was 5 years since the last time I was here, and the team was again Jens Lindman, Andreas Ekström (Neas) and my new buddie Stefan Helkvist. We were also joined by Martin from Austria. Martin's friend got probems with his knees, so Martin walked with us for five days.

We had 9 good days, with a fair dose of rain and mosquitos but also sun and great views.

All the photos here are taken by Andreas Ekström, thanks for letting me use them! Andreas also compiled a diary during the trip (I keep a copy here).
