In case you haven't noticed: We LOVE hiking. Hiking through nature has a lot of advantages. It keeps you fit, you can spend valuable time together, discover a lot of wildlife and explore the great outdoors. Yesterday we hiked a small trail to the top of a hill called Erik-Larsaberget.
In the beginning of our hiking trip we discovered a couple of ponds with several different sized frogs in them. They were enjoying the sun heating up the pond and they had enough food - mosquito larvae.
We crossed over a creek. Then the hard bit started. The climb up. Climbing up Erik-Larsaberget (571m) is a fairly easy exercise. A few hundret meters of some more or less steep climbing - just to get warm. *ahem*
But the rewarding view over the landscape after an exhausting climb up is just enough reason to repeat the exercise a couple of times a year.
On top of the hill there is a look-out and a small log cabin. It's open to the public equipped with a wood stove, a table and a few benches. In the winter you can also go up that hill with a snowmobile (there are snowmobile tracks). Not as much exercise maybe but worth a try to enjoy the views over a winter landscape.
