Hiking Pic of the Week #3

This was taken on the Kungsleden, a 275 mile journey through the Arctic Circle of Sweden. Starting from the Northern entry point, Abisko, your first night is spent in the National Park at a mountain station. For the Northern section, each night thereafter is spent where you see fit. This was taken at the end of my second day on the trail. After 15 miles through beautiful tundra with expansive views, I climbed from the valley below and up to a ridge, completely isolated in this pristine wilderness. I even found a reindeer antler buried near my tent, my Kungsleden souvenir.

The tent featured in this photo is the Squall, an ultralight shelter by Henry Shires.
