Lapland autumn 2009 continued

This second set of pictures were taken by Eric as he flew over the area around the cabins in a light aircraft and will hopefully give you more of a feel for where my cabin is situated and the area around it.

Winding its way up the centre of this picture is the forest track which I use to get to my cabin.  The dark green areas are forest and the light green areas (some with water on are bogs and marshy ground.  There are a number of lakes in the area but to the right of the picture are a small group of lakes that I often walk to, and did walk there again during this visit.

The brown areas in the lower right corner of this picture are areas where the forest has been clear-felled by the national forest company, and the timber taken away to be processed into a variety of products.  The three small ponds to the left of the picture are on top of a small hill behind my cabin and it was while walking there that we found a bears den.

To give a better idea of where my cabin  is located within Northern Europe I have used a yellow place marker to show it on this map taken from Google Earth.
