Passing the Arctic Circle

Link

At 6:30 we were on the road again. Scenery-wise, this was probably the most interesting drive of the whole trip. At one point, we entered the Saltfjellet, which is a mountain area. I knew we were supposed to be crossing the arctic circle soon, and Laura had told me that in the north there are no big trees - just thin ones - so when we got to Saltfjellet, I was amazed. It was a barren landscape, it was green but it was empty - a big empty space with no trees as far as my eyes could see. It felt to me like the Iceland I've seen on TV. I was excited, thinking this is the way it looks like throughout the north of the arctic circle.

Unfortunately it didn't stay that way, there were no trees because (I think) of the altitude, and once we went down the mountains, the trees returned. Lame. :)
