I have been visiting Östalbodarna (close by Myckelgensjö lake) several times after getting back to Sweden from my stay in Norway. And I think I know why I searched and found this place (except from my natural curiosity for new interesting places to see).
I think this place attract me probably because I miss the old mountain pastures I regularly visit in Norway, my mother tought me to love places like this. Östalbodarna (fäbodvall) are based only about 70 km roundtrip by bicycle from my own little farm, so I bike there to enjoy the silence and gather my thoughts, walk around to see and feel the old memories and building details – and of course I get a great cardio workout as well with my MTB-bike 😉
The last time I was here the autumn colours where glowing as you can see, and I can’t decide if this place are most beautiful in its summer or autumn robe – both are beautiful in their own ways.
It is a petty this pasture are not in use anymore – but soo cool to discover the old cream separator (Alfa Laval) in on of the windows.. can you see it? It must have been in use up to 1951 when this pasture closed down. And look at those old and solid timber walls, absolutely beautiful!
I rearly dress up or posh up myself to create a picture, I want my pics to be as be natural and real as possible – so during my latest autumn bike trip here I had an old skirt with me just to keep my ass warm when not biking – so that’s is why I had a skirt on here while eating my lunch, I’m not biking in it! 😀
Stau tuned to also see more of the Norwegian mountain pasture I visited this year ♥
