Glorious day in Abisko!

So, Abisko, it may well be one of the most incredible places to see aurora during the winter but I can tell you, it is also one of the most incredible places to explore in the summer. Today Chad and myself took a trip up to the Aurora Sky Station, a spot at the top of Noulja with a view over the town and the lake and a whole chain of stunning peaks with spots of snow covering them.

The cloud was heavy when we set off but as the chairlift gained height there were amazing patches of light streaming through and illuminating the clouds rolling over the mountain tops.

I took a walk over to the edge of an escarpment to get a clear view of the mountains across the valley, the light was literally some of the most beautiful I have ever experienced, shafts of sunlight through the rain, lakes shimmering silver, fantastic!

Along the edge of the escarpment were stone cairns, they looked great against the skyline. We're off to explore further tomorrow so I'm looking forward to another perfect day in the mountains.
