Kuusamo part I

Reindeer on the way



Here are some of the Kuusamo photos I promised earlier. I have never seen so many reindeers at one time, even though I've been to Kuusamo and Lapland before. Maybe autumn is some kind of wandering time for them, I don't know, but they were everywhere. Luckily the dogs only saw them behind a window. Otherwise I'm sure Mansikki would have chased them all the way to Russia.



Mansikki almost swimming

The dogs looked so happy. Sometimes Mansikki made us a bit worried. She would disappear into the woods, but came back later.

Karua kauneutta. Hauskasti esitetty reitti kartalla :)

Ihanaa!! Poro :). Jokakesäisellä lapinreissulla ei oo tullu meillä eteen, vaikka kovasti oon oottanut.

Kiitos Heidi! :)

Hipsu, no en minäkään ole ikinä noin montaa nähnyt. Tuokin poro kaiveli varpaanvälejään keskellä tietä, eikä huomannut meitä ennen kuin Panu tööttäsi. Sittenkin jäi vain möllöttämään, piti kiertää sen ympäri. Hauskoja otuksia :)

oeeeeh, that looks like a phantastic trip! I'd love to go there, bu have to wait until my little daughter is a bit older. Always wanted to see reindeers and maybe an elk, too.

These photos are so beautiful, I can't imagine seeing a reindeer in real life!
