It smells like ldaybugs outside right now. Today was a little warmer again but later it got back to the chilly spring that we are having. Some years we could go swimming (and enjoy it) in mid May but I am certain it won’t happen this year. But springtime is here and all the dreadful snow is melted away now. Not even the north facing hills on my track had any snow now (which they had last sunday).

The starting point

 

Toward the cottage "Slammertorp"

At the crossroads

Water from the snow that is now gone...


The old fields close to Slammertorp cottage

This is the best part of the woods, the one I always look forward to when struggling up the hills at the other end, this is where it pays of and you can just enjoy the woods

The open fields - but from the other direction actually. The track goes around this field.

The finish of the first part of the track. You can almost see the starting point way up ahead - but not quite. There is about 1/2 km to the finish from here if you cut it short... wich I did not tonight...

Starting on the second part of the track. It is very much uphill from here now just beyond the part you can see here is one of the toughest hills on the track now.

Also a nice part of the track but it is steeper than the picture shows...

The setting sun makes it all worth it. But now it also gets colder, good there is only about 1 km to go from here
