Day 7: Pauro – Baugevatnet

On this night of a thousand stars

by

After a very pleasant night in the hut we start after breakfast and cleaning at 9 am. The weather is sunny and warm again and the autumn fjäll shines with us. A last look back at the huts in Pauro.

On the way we also see some snow grouses that are not shy at all. They sit there very still and if you don’t spot them by accident, you don’t notice them at all.

In the first three hours we make good progress, the way is easy, it goes steadily uphill – sometimes stony and sometimes wet. From above we enjoy the magnificent view of the lakes and the mountain scenery.

The descent is rocky and partly quite muddy but easy and good to walk.

Along the outflow of the Baugevatnet we continue to the next bridge, which is again from the model series “Just-for-Heroes”. First it doesn’t seem to be that wild, but: The bridge swings like hell and instead of a fixed, wide railing, which could still give a glimmer of safety, there are thin wires, which also swing along, as the only way to hold on.
So Markus goes back and forth three times, with his backpack, with me and finally with my backpack.
I don’t want to give the impression that the bridges are dangerous. They are walkable, but for people with fear of heights they are an absolute challenge.

On the other side of the bridge there is an emergency hut – locked, but our hut key fits. We sit down in front of the hut, eat a snack and think about staying right here and spending the night in the hut. We have 9 km behind us, 13 km to Sitas still before us. But the weather today is perfect and we don´t know the weather forecast for the next days. So we go a little further.

Now it’s on a narrow path along the slope along the lake. The path is always a bit inclined due to the hillside location and has some nasty trip hazards called rocks.

Before our way goes up the slope, we decide to camp down here at the lake. Now we are only about 3 km away from the emergency hut, but here at the lake it is sooo beautiful! We get towels and soap and go down to the lake. Markus even goes into the lake and swims a few tempi, it’s enough for me to wash myself on the shore and cool my feet. Then we lie down in the sun and enjoy the warmth and life.
Later we set up our tent, sit outside. And again: as soon as the sun disappears behind the mountains, it gets cold. We eat outside, packed in our down jackets, do some Antara exercises to loosen our shoulder and back muscles and soon disappear into the tent.

We set the alarm to 1 o’clock – hoping to see northern lights again. And in fact we see light northern lights again. But what is even more impressive is the starry sky that night. Countless stars above us and so close that you think you just have to stretch out your hand to touch them.
We are awake until 2:30 am, take pictures and look into the sky. The following picture consists of several single shots, which a friend who is a hobby astronomer has stacked to a single picture.
Also with astronomical support there is a second image, where a constellation is drawn in, namely the swan, lat. Cygnus. Because of its two bright rows of stars it is also called the cross of the north. The constellation shows a flying swan with a long neck and two backward angled wings. In Greek mythology, the swan embodies the god Zeus, who – unrecognised – imitates women in this appearance. Also drawn is the lyre with its bright main star, the Vega, the brightest star in the northern hemisphere.

There are two more single exposures. In comparison to the stacked exposure you can see the abundance of stars that become visible with this method!
