XCFeedsReindeer sightings!

Last year in Mounio the warmest wax we used was in the blue range so this year’s packing list lacked many of the warmer waxes and the unseasonably warm weather here has quickly drained our small supply.  The ski shop in town is also not accustomed to stocking a lot of warm waxes at this time of the year and have been sold out all week.  Today Pepa, Clare, Hannah, and I drove to Levi, the nearest alpine ski area, approximately 60km to the south, in search of klister.  We were somewhat unsuccessful in this regard but were able to find Finnish souvenirs, a great coffee shop, and lots of reindeer!

Not long into the drive we saw the first few along the road and immediately pulled over.

We got out of the car and Pepa eagerly chased after the reindeer hoping to get close enough for a good picture.

But we were a little too aggressive and scared them away

If only we had a bit more extra room in our luggage for the trip home...

We were those tourists today that stop in the middle of the road and take animal pictures

Pepa really wanted a picture with one of reindeer but my photography skills aren't great.  You can kind of see some behind her.
