Sweden videos

Wolverine at Skansen Arctic animals exhibit. Skansen is like a living history museum, filled with old buildings relocated there from all over the country.

Vasamuseet, Djurgarden. Ship was buried for 333 years after extreme listing on its maiden voyage. Discovered in the 1950s and restored using ethylene glycol to replace the water in the wood. Light pieces of wood are restoration replacements. The entire museum was built around this ship, its contents, and its restoration.

Abisko continued

Where the magic took place. The workshop was four days long and had participants from Europe and North America. It was really great to hear about a wide variety of Arctic research.
Out for a stroll on top of a mountain with Rod, Jay, and Mary Anne.

More cairns.

Sweden

Just got back from travel to Abisko, Sweden for a workshop on high latitude terrestrial- aquatic interactions. I'll try to post some of my favorite pictures in the next few days. I spent a few days in Stockholm afterwards and ended up taking well over 1,000 pictures.

Can't say that Sweden is my favorite "destination", but the workshop was well worth it and Abisko is absolutely stunning.


Abisko River

The largest mushroom I've ever seen.
