A FEW RANDOM SHOTS OF OUR TRIP TO INARI TODAY!
Wayne talks about everything being so hardy here in Finland. Have to be because of the harsh winters! These trees are NO exception. Growing out of this boulders is no easy thing!
The SAMI people are 'known' in the Lapland area. We have enjoyed learning about them. Here a Sami lady signs a wooden spoon she made and I purchased.
We went to the SIIDA Museum this afternoon. Part of it was outside. As we were walking around, we noticed the tons of mushrooms everywhere. Mushrooms grow like crazy all over Finland. These red ones are beautiful....BUT DO NO EAT THESE....they are poisonous! Only the brown variety of eatable!
I found me a pair of these handmade slippers. They are so comfortable. Made of leather outside and lambs wool inside. Should be warm for the winter.
When we checked into our Hotelli Inari tonight, the temperature was there to greet us. A reminder that it is a bit chilly up here.
