Seitseminen - snowy paths

Today, I returned to Seitseminen National Park. I walked about 12 kilometres through snowy paths in a silent forest. I saw some woodpeckers, Hazel Grouses, Crossbills and five humans. That was pretty much all. I did see some prints on the snow, Meese, Squirrel and Fox but basically the forest already hibernates.

The Beaver had built a new dam but I didn't see anybody there

Obviously, the woodcutter is still awake because there were many slivers of wood floating on the water

The weather was warm (0 degrees) but clouds made the day almost dark. The paths were very slippery - I was lucky and managed to find my way out of the forest without hurting myself though it was quite exciting. I needed my headlamp after nightfall arrived.

Close to this place I found a new (for me) campfire place. I had thought it was somebody's log cottage - it looks like  such. I checked the place and found out that it's a luxury sausage grilling residence. That's the place where I saw those 5 people too. It was too dark for photos but I'll return there - if not several times in the future!

Nothing wrong with landscapes in Switzerland either - I just watched my old photos from Zurich and Luzern few days ago!

Should you buy a flight ticket to Egypt?

such a beautiful place but I'm glad the snow is there and not here yet! I'm loving the warm temperatures we're still enjoying 15 to 18 degrees celcius and I'm not ready for the cold and snow. I need to be like a bird and fly south for the winter!
