posts about lake inari.

here’s my project 52 shot for the thirtyfourth week. the topic was


a mouse. killed from behind, while being trapped. gone to water. already dead, probably for some days. it’s hard to say who killed it. was it the boat owner, by leaving the boat there? was it the rain, by filling up the boat? was it suicide, as the mouse entered the boat by free will? or was it chased there? are there any witnesses? any alive ones, even?

the last five days i’ve been spending at lake inari, near to ivalo, as you might have already seen. unfortunately, it was cloudy most of the time. but most of the time it was dry, and never too cold. (i never wore a jacket.) the area is just beautiful, especially if it is so colorful during ruska.

if you’re interested in staying there, here is the mökki’s booking page. this one has tap water, though it contains a lot of iron and many people do not like the taste. (i didn’t mind it too much, though.) the sauna is wood-driven, as in the first mökki.
