We spent the next day at Hasse’s mothers cabin in Sammakko .
Emma and Pontus were playing on the snow
and Sebastian was practicing his fire making skills
and we spent the day enjoying the sun, riding snow mobiles, drinking coffee and grilling sausage
These trees outside the cabin are Lodgepole Pine (Pinus concorta)
it is native to North America/Canada and I can remember Mors Kochanski talking about the introduction of these to Scandinavia when I was working with him. In America they grow long and straight and have been traditionally used by Native Americans as tepee poles, but here in Scandinavia they have grown very differently and are not good as a harvesting product.
