Time had come to head northbound to find the black ice. In the south of Sweden November is mild and grey. Our goal was the mountain region in Härjedalen, 600 km from where we live. The dream was black ice surrounded by snow covered mountains.
A new day and new hope…
Due to snowfall in Härjedalen we decided to head 200 km south, to north west Dalarna, where there was no snow. The weather forecast showed temperatures below zero and no precipitation the coming 5 – 6 days. Our search of ongoing freezing lakes started.
We were out at sunrise our first day in county Dalarna. Near our cottage we found this wonderful little pond in the marshes.
Thursday the 26th of November is our first day on ice. Magic! The cold had made its job.
