Last Saturday we drove to a well-known waterfall Älgafallet on the border with Norway. We followed some signs and checked the GPS to find the place, and when we did it felt like the middle of nowhere.
We left the car at a small parking place and walked deep into the woods to find the waterfall itself. It was -7 C (19 F), and the nature was frozen. Although we had scarves, gloves and proper boots on, it felt extremely cold. Puddles were frozen and slippery, and sometimes when we stepped on them the thin ice was breaking, so it was very difficult to move on. At some point we collected some bushes and made small bridges over the puddles.
When we finally reached the 46-meter-high waterfall we found it astonishing. It was definitely worth the adventures we had been through.
