Hängbro in Bispgården

I finally got to visit the hanging bridge in Bispgården. It was just a small trip but definitely a place I will come back to!We only went for a small walk and thought we should go there. The view around was beautiful, even though it was a dark and cloudy day. The water was flowing…

Västanåfallet

Not far from my home and basically on the way to Sundsvall is a waterfall. It is so close to the way, that you can already see it from the parking lot, while it is remote enough to offer an enjoyable feeling of solitude in nature and the forest. I had been curious about it…

Bjursjöberget Naturreservat

Recently I visited Bjursjöberget Naturreservat. It is very close to where I live and I have been there before. However it was hard to hike in the winter because of the deep snow in the forest, so I promised to myself to return when the snow has melted. This photo I took at the end…

Water and ice

Before the ice finally melted I took a walk in the forest and up to Grössjön and took some last pictures at the lake while some of the ice was still on it. The forest was finally free of snow, so I was able to walk through the woods around the lake a bit and…

Spring days and nights

While it was warm and sunny during the days in April, as soon as the sun vanished it got cold again. However the nights got shorter and shorter and stopped reaching 100% darkness. Most of the time at least a very faint gloom of light was visible at the horizon. This photo I took at…

Gardening

I am not especially talented with plants. On the contrary, if anything I am really good at killing any plant in no time at all... However I really want to learn how to keep plants alive and well. I love green and seeing new leaves growing. To me it always seems like a little miracle.…

Dödafallet

Closeby, here in the area is a very fascinating place, called "Dödafallet", which roughly translates to "dead falls". It used to be a waterfall behind a lake, but through a catastrophe a few hundred years ago, the water from the whole lake emptied, leaving the lake empty and the waterfall forever quiet. You can read…

Evening Fishing

Now that the days grow longer and warmer, I can learn more fishing techniques than just ice-fishing. At the moment there aren't a lot of mosquitos yet, so it is very cozy to sit by the water and just enjoy the sounds of nature (birds singing, water flowing by, wind gently waft through trees) and…

Unexpected snow

Hahahahahaha 😀 One day after blogging about how all the snow has melted and disappeared, the temperatures dropped to 0°C again and I awakened to a white landscape. The rain that started to fall yesterday turned to (a looooooot of) snow over night and covers all the freshly appearing green in a soft and wet…

Goodbye Snow

Spring is here now and the snow has almost completely melted. It went really fast now, just a month ago we had so much snow left everywhere and only the roads were free. Now however, only very shadowy places have snow left. Here are some photos from last week. How beautiful it was outside with…
