XC-Skating, Tämnaren & Erken, January 6th

Finally the planets aligned to allow for some XC-Skating, after an early season wiped out by snow followed by warm temperatures.. With Emil & Jon I drove first to lake Tämnaren, north of Uppsala. It was skateable, but with fairly rough ice covered by a little bit of ice.. We made a loop around the islands, about 8 kilometres, and then headed back to the starting point.. Whisking south-east to lake Erken, conditions proved a lot better with the melted snow re-frozen as pretty good ice.. We took the lap around the lake counter-clock wise with a lunch stop on the western side, distance covered was 27 kilometres.. Overall, great start of the season!
