SNOWY SWEDISH TRAILS
A frosty trip to Storbo in the winter wonderland. We are on a sledding holiday in Sweden and exploring the Dalarna region. This is the second time we have visited this area. This trail was the first longer distance trip our team embarked upon shortly after arriving in Sweden. The route covered a distance of approximately 30 miles and took us north to the town of Storbo. Although the average temperature sat at about -9 C for most of the run, we had just received a fresh dump of snow in the last 24 hours leaving lots of fresh powder on the trail. The weather conditions for the duration of the trip were either snowing or grey skies threatening to snow . . . . . . . . . snowflake build up on eye lashes became a bit of a nuisance at times.
Putting the weather aside the route took us through some beautiful woodland scenery, the fresh snow had accumulated on the tree branches which gave the impression Bear and Inka had lead us into Narnia. Dalarna had suffered quite mild temperatures until later into the winter this year, which explained why some of the rivers and lakes you can see on our pictures that we crossed had not fully frozen.
