PCT – Kapitel 13 : Oregon


För 7700 år sedan kollapsade och sjönk den ca 3660 m höga vulkanen Mount Mazama ner i den underjordiska sjö av lava som samlats under den. Detta bildade en ca 9,8 x 7,5 kilometer bred och 592 meter djup krater som efter hand fylldes med regn, snö och smältvatten. Mer lava pressades upp ur jorden

PCT – Kapitel 11 : Halvvägs


Så kom jag slutligen fram till den punkt på leden som jag i förväg oroat mig allra mest för. Punkten där stolpen som markerar ledens mittpunkt står. Att oroa sig för att komma halvvägs kanske låter konstigt, men jag var orolig för att om jag när jag kom fram hit kände mig någorlunda trött på

Lost in transit


På grund av det amerikanska postsystemet har jag tyvärr inte kunnat uppdatera min blogg vid mitt senaste etapp-stopp. Jag har de senaste dagarna befunnit mig i South Lake Tahoe, (mile 1090) och väntat på min dator som varit på vift i posten. Dessvärre har den fortfarande inte dykt upp och jag måste nu vandra vidare,

PCT – Kapitel 8 : Vatten


Bishop – Mammoth Lakes. 118 miles / 190 km – När jag gjorde research inför min vandring längs the Pacific Crest Trail kunde jag läsa att när man kom till the Sierras skulle ens tempo drastiskt minska. Vandrade man vanligtvis 20 miles per dag skulle man inte bli förvånad om man där trappade ner till 10.

PCT – Kaptiel 7 : Snö


Kennedy Meadows – Bishop. 86 miles / 138 km – Så var det äntligen dags för den del av leden jag både sett fram mot och fasat för: Sierra Nevada. Här skulle ökenlandskapet bytas mot höga snötäckta berg. Redan i Kennedy Meadows gick diskussionerna heta mellan de entusiastiska vandrarna. Hur mycket snö var det? Skulle

PCT – Kaptiel 6 : Slitage


Tehachapi – Kennedy Meadows. 144 miles / 232 km – Kära följare, jag kan med glädje meddela att jag nu kommit fram till Kennedy Meadows, platsen som markerar slutet på södra Kalifornien och början av Sierra Nevada bergen! Detta innebär att jag nu klarat av den första delen av the Pacific Crest Trail och vandrat 702

PCT – Kaptiel 5 : Mojaveöknen


Aqua Dulce – Tehachapi. 104 miles / 167 km – Efter en dryg månad på leden, i ett väder som inte kanske varit det mest karaktäristiska för öknen så har jag till slut kommit fram till den så kallade Mojaveöknen, ledens förmodligen varmaste del. Mojaveöknen kallas också ”the high desert” på grund av den höga höjd

The beautiful High Coast Bridge. 🌉
Yesterday I posted about @jerryengstrom and the outdoor village @friluftsbyn that is located here in the UNESCO World Heritage "The High Coast"
.
The High Coast on the Swedish east coast and has gotten its name from the dramatic change in nature where the coastline have raised about 300 meters since the ice age (which actually is a world record)! This has made a deep impact on nature which is characterized by steep mountains and deep seas and forests. The area is great for kayaking, climbing, hiking and other outdoor activities.
.
This, the High coast bride is a beautiful landmark and also sort of a gateway to this beautiful area that reaches from Härnösand to Örnsköldsvik. This is definitely a must see in Sweden!
I'm very proud to present the next person to share his story at #MYWILDERNESSSTORY : @jerryengstrom, founder of @friluftsbyn.
.
Jerry worked in a very high position at @fjallravenofficial when he one day decided to quit his job to follow his dream to create a meeting point for outdoor enthusiasts in the UNESCO World Heritage The High Coast in Sweden. He wanted to "live within the nature, not talk about it".
.
Today is @friluftsbyn one of the biggest meeting points in sweden for outdoor activities and it arranges plenty of festivals and events each year such as Utefest and the High Coast Winter Classic. Isn't it amazing how much you can do if you find your passion and start working for your dream to become true? ❤️👊

When I was younger I used to hate winter. I just thought it was cold and that there was nothing to do. Today I've totally changed my mind, the winter is amazing! And there's so many things you can do. Why not dress warm this weekend and go out for a winter hike! ❄️
For me, 2017 was a year full of traveling and one trip I haven't really written much about is my trip to Switzerland in September. It was such an amazing trip and it really opened up my eyes for this magical country. I can't wait to publish my story and show you my pics from it! Coming soon at wilderness-stories.com!

As this new year starts I also start to feel ready for new adventures! What should I do next? I have some shorter trips coming up but I'm looking for a bigger project as well! What do you want to see me doing? 😀

First swim of the year - check! ✅
Let's see what more this new year can bring. 2018: Hit me! 💕
Christmas is over and now there's only a few days left of this year. I just love this time of year when you naturally get to stop and have a look at your life. Are the path you're walking on taking you the way you want or is it time to stop and start walking in another direction? Only you have the power to make that decision.
☀️❄️☀️
Today is a good day to check whether you see things from the bright side or tend to see the negative aspect. As its the winter solstice today it means that you can either look at it as the darkest day of the year - or the day when it starts to get brighter and brighter again!
The choice is yours, I know what i choose. ☀️

Kayaking along the Swedish east coast in winter time might be amazing, but it wouldn't be the same without the awesome people in the group I'm traveling with. This is two of them, Elle from @ellesutemat and her sweet dog Iris. ❤️
