Back from a hike

I had a really great time last week when I was hiking in the Oulanka national park in Kuusamo, Finland. It was pretty tough and I think I lost about 3kgs of my weight during the 4 days. I walked the so called Bear Trail hiking route which is one of the most popular hiking routes in Finland. It is about 70kms long and follows the rivers of Oulankajoki and Kitkajoki and ends up on the hills of Ruka.

As it was my first time there, I didn't really know what to excpect and I must admit that I was in some of the most beautiful places at the wrong time of the day for good photographs, but now that I know the area I am sure going to return there.

I will try to upload a few deviations from the trip soon, but meanwhile you can browse them in a small gallery that I made…

DA bug

Almost everytime that I check my message box in DA, try to update my journal or just browse through the journals, my DA seems to jam. Does anyone else have this kind of problem? I am using Firefox of course. Last week I lost a long journal that I wrote before the trip, because of this bug, so it is getting quite annoying...

Definitely the collection includes one of zour best photographs and as well kind of different to your other work. A really wild landscape captured really amazing.
