It has been a time of challenges while I have struggled to depict the majestic mountain views - it feels like I can never represent the immensity of the feelings they inspire as I am driving, walking and skiing through those vivid and great landscapes.
The weather also keep challenging me while shifting between hail, storm and sun - unpredictable and impossible to plan.
Also, a breakdown of machinery - a minor problem with the camper - force me to retreat to Östersund to fix it.
However, I feel blessed.
I go to sleep and wake up stunned at the view outside my window - always a "room with a view".
In Vålådalen, I took my skis up to Kyrkstensfjället though winter is slowly losing the battle and I ended up walking half the way. Ski boots are not made for walking. But yet - it was stunning - one of these days with fleeting moments where time stand stills and universe is holding its breath.
As I am still in Jämtland, few places are new to me, but allow me to experience them in another way, in a slower pace and with a stronger mindful presence. I revisit the waterfalls...
... and I tour Kallsjön and Anjan where the winter landscape strengthen the perception of driving straight through the mountains. I will have to return when the ice has retracted and the lakes are open to enjoy kayaking. After all, the shores of Anjan is my inspiration for this tour.
Finally, after my unforeseen pit stop in Östersund, I follow Inndalsälven over the highest point to the Norwegian side where the rolling mountains in Sweden are exchanged for more dramatic shores of the Inna.
It is also a trip down memory lane. I made an amazing pilgrimage to the Nidaros cathedral (Nidarosdomen) in Trondheim few years back.
And I caught up with spring.
