Kungsleden Day 2
After our first rainy day of hiking we woke up to a gorgeous sunny day. The second day was the best day we had as it was the only day we didn't have any rain (though the clouds did roll in in the evening). It was also incredibly gorgeous - the best scenery of the trip in my opinion. We woke up early and started hiking like we did while hiking the PCT.
The first thing we did that day was hike up above the tree line where we remained until the last day while hiking out. It was great as you could see everything around. We hiked through a valley all day and we kept going over a ridge and and it would open up and you could see more. It was like every time I thought man this is amazing! Then the next ridge - this is even better! And better and better. It was incredible. We also saw a lot of reindeer which was exciting. Now on to the photos!
Our second meditation spot.
View of the lake we would walk along most of the day from the meditation spot.
This was my favorite plant
View from the second cabin which was located at the top of a cliff. We walked through the valley seen here the next day.

The clouds were starting to come in, but the sun was still out before it went behind the ridge.
At our campsite hanging out. It was a little chilly. We realized that we walked way too far today if we don't want to just have a few days to just sit and do nothing at the end of the trip. The trail was super easy to hike so you can go far in not very much time. Starting the following day we lazed around in the morning and started hiking late, tried to take long breaks if we could when it wasn't raining, and stopped hiking well before dinner so we could try and stretch out the hike. If the trail had more access points we could have just continued hiking, but unfortunately there are only a few places that far north to get to and from the trail so we had to stick to the plan. So after this is was try and walk slow and waste time. Unfortunately the rest of the days were not very nice weather wise. We had some sun every day, but lots of rain as well which is not really conducive to taking long breaks.
