Headed out early in the morning for some ice-skating with my brother Trond.. At dawn we arrived to Svenstavik at the southern tip of lake Storsjön.. Ice conditions were pretty decent but during the heavy wind the night before a lot of ice was brushed away.. Still, we made a lap of around 10 km before being back at the car.. We continued to drive on to lake Rätanssjön, where conditions were a bit worse but still good enough.. Turning point was at the northern tip of theblake where Ljungan river enters.. This second session was also around 10 km.. Hamburger lunch on the way back to Östersund went down like a treat..

First XC-skating session of the season.. I headed north-west with my brother Jon to Lake Tämnaren, which often freezes first of the classical ice skating lakes in the Stockholm region as it's very shallow.. The conditions were really nice, altough the wind picked up considerably during the morning and at some places we had to make our way around open water or very thin ice.. A great day!
