Rogen to Røros 2

Rogen, Sweden

A Scandinavian canoe expedition part two
By Mal Grey

Mal and crew had reached the larger lakes that marked the half-way point for the Roa River system. One of the group, Dris, had suffered a bad ankle sprain and they were resting in a remote hut and hoping they would be able to continue the next day. However, after a luxurious night in their wood cabin, dawn brought new optimism.

Once it had warmed up a little, Dris’s ankle would take his weight, though it was still painful. He would not be able to carry a load, but it was hoped he’d be able to hobble the portages they needed to do, for the route ahead looked as if there’d be as much carrying as paddling, before they reached the larger lakes that marked the half-way point for the Roa River system. An easier pace was called for.
