Kungsleden Day 5


We awoke on day 5 to another sunny morning! It didn't last long, but it was nice while we had it. We lazed around in the morning since we had so much time and not very far to go and it was nice. Once we started walking out first break was at an emergency shelter that a group of German kids had taken over. They had a billion stoves going inside cooking breakfast for everyone. We walked on and quickly came to a trail junction where you could go up and over a pass to get to the trail that heads out, or go to the next cabin. We took the up and over, which took longer than expected. Every time we thought we were at the top we went over the ridge to find it was more up! Finally we got to the top and a nice camping spot so we stopped for lunch there with some Swedish guys. It was their first backpacking trip and they were asking us for recommendations for what to eat and such. They were really nice and it was fun talking to them. The clouds started coming in as we finished up lunch so we packed up and headed on. Rain clouds periodically on our way down the valley, but they didn't stay long. We found a nice place to camp down in the valley, though it was pretty windy. We camped behind some rocks with did help as a wind break, but it was still incredibly windy all night. The wind was blowing hard all night and it was like pushing me a little bit while I was trying to sleep (so all night it was like someone was like hey jen! Wake up! Jen! Wake up! and trying to shake me awake. It was a little annoying and needless to say I didn't sleep very much). Now onto the photos from the day of hiking:
