TITLE: HELLO RAINFALL MY OLD FRIEND...
LOCATION: TSIELEKJÅKK CABIN - LAKE FÁLESJÁVRRE
MISSION: STAY DRY, STAY POSITIVE
DATE: 2017-07-16

Leaving the valley and the cabin we made our way up towards the pass, met a guy from California who allegedly had done 35 km the day before, and at the top the rain hit us. Our ponchos proved to be a spectacularly poor choice given the wind speeds up in the mountains. Passing the peak Goabddábakte the rain clouds were practically hanging just above our heads, still we managed to cook up some lunch between showers a bit downhill along the trail. The rain just kept coming down all through the day, which is why most pictures were taken with our cellphones instead of my sister's Sony (and it shows). The stretch between the peak and the coniferous forest close to the water was just one dense thicket of vegetation and combined with the never-ending rain really took a toll on morale. Arriving at the great river late at night we could not find a suitable spot to pitch our tents and we were too tired to go on, a bummer. In the end we found a rocky patch on the islet in the middle of the stream where we squeezed us in, all three sharing our big tent.
