Fieldwork night

PhD candidate Jan is currently representing the team in the high north. Tonight: spectacular yet lonely dinner-with-a-view in the waffle house on top of Låktatjåkko mountain, cosely tucked away from the windy 2°C that rules outside. The coronavirus has made him the only customer brave enough to face the top of the world tonight, but that doesn’t make the views any less breath-taking.

View from Låktatjåkko’s waffle house on an autumn evening. This cosy place at the end of a 800 meter climb is highly recommended for anyone visiting the Abisko area in northern Sweden.

The tough conditions outside are compensated by the good news from the plots: many germinated seeds in the experiments, and all in good condition, the occassional tree falling into the plot aside. Looking forward to the results coming in!
