delight, it began snowing again. Another wonderful day full of challenges and adventure was discussed as we enjoyed a cold glass of wine. A reindeer farm experience began the next day where we rode in a sled pulled by a reindeer and explored an old house which once belonged to the early Finn immigrants who learned their survival skills from the original Sami people of the area. Then it was off to visit a local artist’s home and gallery which he had built himself out of logs from the forest. It was an amazing mix of adjoining rooms with a huge open fireplace where he entertained us by singing accompanied by his zither, he was a very accomplished performer. Located on one level of the house was a heated swimming pool, another a fabulous dining room/gallery and up in the attic his art studio. His oil paintings of the surrounding countryside in all seasons and the self -portraits were just wonderful With nervous excitement we began the next day with a 5 minute video of instructions on dog sledding followed by a basic hands on instruction from our guide Katerina. I wondered if I would remember everything!! When we stood on the rungs of the sled and held on grimly to the handles, our guide and dogs were ready to RUN!! We took off with Katerina in the lead then Joan and I each with our own dog team.
