We are now staying at the towns camp site. It’s located at the foot of the city’s ski slope, and Mom parked just at the bottom of the ski lift. Every winter growing up, this is where Mom was skiing both down hill and cross country. The slope and the tracks are lit up through the woods, because days are very short in the winter up here in the North. This is a picture taken by the web camera located o the roof of the lift building.
 
 
 
This is daytime .................taken by Mom
 
   
Yesterday we went for a bike ride to a shopping center on top of the hill. Holey smokes is Mom in bad shape, she was pedaling and huffing and puffing to get up. She blamed the bike not having any gears .......... I cheered her on the best I could, and we made it......................going back down hill was really speedy, almost scary.
 
   
The only reason we did go to the mall, was to get my treats which is very important at bed time. I didn’t get one last night, and that’s NOT ok .
Fall colors are starting to show, and that’s pretty, but I keep telling Mom we better get going before it starts to snow.................not to worry she says...............hope she's right..
 
 
this is probably the last of the wild flowers before a thick blanket of snow will cover everything
 
     
 
 
at many places these kind of benches,half houses and a cement ring are put up ? Mom says it’s because most Swedes loves the outdoors, and mostly in the wintertime they dress warm in many layers, and make a fire in these pits (cemet ring) and grill hot dogs...........Mom says she’s not missing that............
 
early in the morning an entire herd of little kids on bikes showed up. It was a first grade class from a nearby school....I stayed away...... This kids are 6 years old and they climbed the slope and had a picnic,after they went on their way in a very orderly fashion.  Two teachers were accompanied them.
 
 
 
Mom decided to climb up the slopes and take pictures, I preferred to stay in bed, which I did
 
 
 
some places are pretty steep....
 
 
good thing no one was below when these boulders came rolling down.............. looks like they're digging and making a little jump ready for the ski sason.....
   
 
Last night Mom went to meet some friends from her puppy hood, so once again I had to watch Adrienne, That cost Mom a few treats.......................that I surley deserved.
Today we are being real lazy, laying around, watching TV, reading, knitting ...........and napping.
Yesterday we watched POTUS visiting Sweden, too bad I wasn't there to greet him. I could have told him a lot I've learned about Sweden, and I could have taught him a few more words than HEJ ..............well, next time maybe.....................all is well...............wet kisses to all
