May 14: Nuuksio 1
Nuuksio National Park is a huge wilderness park within Espoo, established in 1994, surprisingly recently. James and Matt and I took a day trip there to get out into the woods for a bit.
We took a train and a bus to get there. This was a bridge along the way on the train.
A TV tower, it would seem.
The station where we transferred, I forget exactly where. We had to sprint to catch the bus.
A nice old shed in Nuuksio.
The road leading further into the park.
It was a lovely fresh morning, with an alpine feel to the air.
At the info center, a collection of skulls. A skullection.
The info center is of Blockbau construction, and that just added to the alpine sensation.
Des pins majestiques.
From a rocky outcropping with a great view, a mysterious field.
Some more context.
Looking closer to straight down from the outcropping.
A craggy ol' guy by the rocks.
Further along in the woods, a rootfall. A rootballfall.
A rather allee-looking (w/r/t the spruces along the edge) powerline cut.
