Susanne Simonsson's Reindeer Encounter!

Me and Kristina were on our way home again after a weekend on the trail. We started in Norway and crossed the border over to Sweden and back again. Holiday for hard working housewives. We thought that it's always the women staying at home with the kids at the farm so we packed the truck with sleds and dogs and some food for all of us and went for the adventure. smiley.gif (89 bytes)

We had a guide, Uno Stenmyren, but he was in a hurry to get home so when we met the reindeers we where all alone. It was amazing. I could see something moving down the mountain but could not understand what at first. Then I understood!!

Oh no! I yelled to Kristina to go faster! I thought we could get the dogs running faster so they would miss all action happening beside them, but the dogs where tired so we decided to hit the brake really hard and try to stand still and let the reindeers cross the trail.

It was a rather beautiful moment and I just hoped that all dogs should behave nice. No chewing on necklines or harness to get free. We had some miles behind us so the dogs where maybe too tired to hunt, so the meeting didn't give us any trouble just the adrenaline kick – it could have ended in a disaster. smiley.gif (89 bytes)

It was beautiful but I don't want to meet them like this again! It was maybe 60 -70 in the herd.

I dropped my gloves and got the camera out and prayed that I could keep the sled still while taking photos, nobody would believe us without. smiley.gif (89 bytes)
