Day 10: Skoaddejávri – Čáihnavagge
The infamous block field of Čáihnavagge
The first part actually goes quite well, but then we get into an area of really big blocks. Between the blocks, there are crevasses, which are sometimes more than one meter deep, between the blocks sometimes height differences clearly over half a meter – which is especially not funny with our heavy luggage and stepping down. As if that wasn’t exhausting enough, we struggle with the extremely gusty and meanwhile also very stormy wind. We offer too much surface with our backpacks and the gusts are strong enough that they bring us out of balance and we have to stabilize on the rocks in the block field. After all, it doesn’t rain and we are lucky that the block field isn’t slippery.
Evening mood? 19 o’clock? When did it get so late? We actually needed 2 hours through the block field east of the lake. And as you can see in the next picture, our destination is only very small at the end of the next lake and it will take almost 1.5 hours until we actually arrive there.
