Skiing in Saariselkä, where we kept expecting to see Joe Ayotte!
After checking out of our hotel, we had time before our evening flight home. We rented cross country skis and headed toward the national forest that abuts Saariselkä.
Saariselkä is known for the ski trails. We headed off in the direction of a hut. Sophia and I skied 10k and Chris went further and did 12k. It was beautiful. We kept expecting to see Joe rounding the corner with a smile on his face. The trails were beautifully groomed. Even the sledding hill was beautifully groomed!
