Our Secret Gateway
We love to hike, along footpaths and hiking trails, my wife and I. Short hikes! We have found such a path or trail, which we love . It
begins where our hometown in northern Sweden meets the countryside . But it is difficult to find the entrance. It’s almost like finding the Gateway to the land of Narnia
The Red Cottage
It was actually a couple of friends who told us about the secret footpath . Otherwise, we had never discovered it. The trail dives in among dark trees, then it follows the Skellefte river. At a red Cottage with white trim,
the path curves up on a steep slope. At the top of the hill is a simple bench overlooking the river. On the right side are slopes with fields, but on the other side of the river begins the wilderness.
I get the feeling that there could be Tipies hidden among the wooded hills and Sioux-hunters on a canoe on the other side on the river, or perhaps a Same from the Native Scandic people. But, now it!s end of the rest, and we’re going back down the hill.
