Spåret is a fantastic motion trail just some 100 metres from here. It is 3.6 km long and good for skiing (if not too much snow), running and going for a walk. It leads through forests, over large granite rocks, over sandy bottoms and passes some small swamps. When I walked there with Annika last weekend I spotted some beautiful pond-lilies. Today I took a hike there to take some pictures.
The mosquitos and horse flies appreciated that.
From top to bottom, from left to right:
- Sundew, a carnivorous plant. Can grow directly on mud.
- Heath spotted orchid. Protected in Sweden and other countries.
- Cloudberry, a berry growing on wet ground. Rich in vitamin C. Guarded by mosquitoes …
- Sphagnum (or peat moss), the main building bog of peat bogs.
- Cotton-Grass, a sedge that looks like wool. Loves wet ground.
- European white water lily, an aquatic plant with blossoms of great beauty.
