Overnight in a wind shelter at Trångforsen

December 12, 2021

I Spent a night in a wind shelter at Trångforsen outside Skålan, Jämtland. Everything was very quiet and I only heard the fire crackling and the ice singing at the bottom among the dark rocks.

I explore the surrounding area and the stream was completely frozen and the stars sparkling on the sky in the cold night.

I felt like I need something warming so I collect some snow from the table so I can melt and boil a cup of warm coffee.

Soon I fell asleep in front of the campfire in the wind shelter while I watch all stars on the sky.

In the middle of the night I woke up abruptly because a large animal rushed past just outside the wind shelter, I did not have time to recognize what kind of animal it was, maybe a Bear or a Wolverine.

I need to get up and take a leak so I can take the opportunity to check the tracks on the thin layer of frost on the ground. The fire had burn out and everything was completely quiet. I searched and looked for the tracks from the animal that just ran past but I only found my own foot print. Eventually I realized that all must have been a dream, but it was so real.

On my way back to the car in the morning I spotted a fresh Wolverine track.
