One of my favorite walks in Tromsø is the loop trail around Prestvannet, a lake at one of the higher points on Tromsøya. It's a small lake (the loop trail is only 1.7 km) but the surrounding area forms a public park and nature reserve. The lake itself and its marshy perimiter are a nesting area for a variety of bird species. It's only a twenty minute walk from my flat, but when you're up in the park, it's a serene spot to go walk, run, or simply sit and reflect. It's a sanctuary.
My sister-in-law is in town for a visit and we took a walk up there this evening so I could show her the lake, and I was pleased to see Tromsø really starting to show its autumn colors (it was all green the first few times I was up there, as seen here). It's a special joy to watch the landscape begin to change like this for the first time.
I hope you enjoy seeing this shifting landscape too, and I'm looking forward to documenting it throughout the seasons.
