Fishing for trout

This week, we were “on the road” again..

It`s not that cold any more! And it feels good to be sitting on grass and heather once again.

Later that day we arrived at Kangidder. Our campsite, above the lake, at night.

When sitting at a fishing hole, it can feel as if time stands still. Nothing is happening.

The fish just wont`t bite.

But once in a while, I was rewarded for not giving up!!

When this beautiful trout swallowed the bait, I could feel my heart jumping in my chest! 🙂

Back at the campsite, there was always somebody to chat with! We enjoyed the company of friends, and having meals together.

People were coming and going. At this time of the year, we often travel at night, since it doesn`t get dark any more. At night, the sunlight is less intense, and the temperature drops. That means that the snow and ice is more frozen than at daytime, which makes it easier for the dogs to pull the sledge.

Midnight sun, of course, is no guarantee for sunshine! – We made it home through the fog.
