Today, for the first time we visited Patvinsuo National Park in North Karelia, about an hour away from our home. Out of many trails, we decided on a short 5 km Mäntypolku Trail which basically means "Pine trail". On the way you learn everything there is to know about Pine trees, and the fishermen's sauna from the 19th century among many other things on the way tells stories about war history and how people in North Karelia used to live in the past. If you're lucky the trail offers you more and less rare birds to spot, and you'll probably also meet a few curious ones. And even in the late autumn, in +4 degrees Celcius you can find yourself on a one of the sandy beaches of Lake Suomunjärvi.
