Hiking in Lapland
51

In September I spent a week hiking in northern Finland very close to Norwegian border. I had OM-1 with two lenses, M.Zuiko Pro f4 8-25mm & 12-100mm. This time I spent the nights comfortably in hotel leaving at sunrise and returning before dark. My day trips were only 15-25 km and I carried only one camera body with two lenses plus food and additional clothing with me. Most of the time I had OM-1 with 12-100 attached by PeakDesign Capture Clip 3.0 to my 30 litre Savotta Jääkäri M -bag (Jääkäri M – Savotta) which is my new "camera backbag" and the best backbag I have ever had. In Lapland there is no shortage of pure water which makes hiking a lot lighter when you don´t have to carry water supply with you. Of course if I had been on a multiday trip with tent, sleeping bag and food for several days, I would have carried only one lens instead of two. I saw many young women between 20-35 years trekking alone or with 1-2 friends and carrying large and heavy backbags. I told about this to my son (he´s 27 years) and he confirmed that trekking is very popular among women of his age while guys are mostly interested in beer and football   Hope you like the images.
