    ... direction), and up into a hill covered with nice orange and brown autumnal vegegation. The trail at the end passes two waterfalls, the second one slightly larger. There is a good viewpoint and then a continuation of the path descending to a lower viewpoint closer to the waterfall with the aid of a chain.

    On getting back to the campsite around six pm there are several more people hanging out in the indoor section, including Michel - the French guy who ...

    ... with caramelized onions and Cumberland sauce and smoked goose with horseradish sauce. Minna's main was an amazing beef tenderloin, while Howard feasted on reindeer steak that was as tender as meat could be. This is the restaurant's signature dish as this is reindeer country. After dinner we watched from our hotel window for the aurora borealis as the internet reports showed a moderate chance for it tonight. It has been very cloudy every night so ...
