Shades of winter in Savo

Last weekend we were up in Kuopio for a hockey tournament. Fortunately the Mr.’s parents live nearby, so we didn’t have to stay in a hotel.

There has been no snow in the capital region for a couple of weeks now, so winter is definitely over. Not so in Savo! I brought my snowshoes in hopes I would be able to slap them on and head into the bush. I wasn’t disappointed. There was at least 50 cm of snow in the bush – and it had a nice hard crust on it – making it absolutely superb for snowshoeing! Even the Mr.’s dad strapped them on and went to investigate around the property.

I didn’t have a lot of time, but it sure was nice to get out and enjoy the snow (which was sorely missing in southern Finland this past winter) and the bush. My dog had a great time roaring around. 🙂

The moose have been munching on the trees too… It seems they have had a harder winter than normal.
