Kayaking, Södermanland, April 21st-22nd

Weekend kayaking trip solo in Södermanlands archipelago.. Headed out on Saturday morning from Aspö, south of Studsvik, grey skies, 2-5 degrees celcius.. Leisurly pace in a loop to west and then south.. Found a scenic camp site on Kittelö, with lagoon-like protection from the waves.. Sunday I continued south-west and rounded Lökholmen and then worked my way back to the starting point against the wind.. Plenty of bird life, very few people, nice start of the season!

Mtb, Northern Öland, April 7th

The weather changed during the night, and 1-2 inches of snow brought back the winter.. Perfect conditions to clear the head, so I headed south from Byxelkrok down to Byrums Raukar.. From there, crossed to the east side of the island at Böda Sands camping, and then headed north on White Prick's trail, before closing the loop back to Byxelkrok..

Mtb, Northern Öland, April 6th

Day 1 of eastern Mtb on Northern Öland, making a loop up to the lighthouse and back to Byxelkrok.. Several sections did not have trails but the terrain is fairly forgiving.. Great fun to discover new routes..
