Nuuksio Now: Week 36, 2018

Nuuksio National Park during week 36, between 3.-9.9.2018.

Fall month, September is literally fall month in Finnish, has started and we finally get mushrooms. Other signs of fall coming are the dropping leaves and nights getting longer and dark, but the weather is still very much summer, with temperatures over +20°C.

We probably get rain showers on some days, though the weather is mostly sunny and partly cloudy. The national park is now getting quieter towards winter, the unmarked trails are very quiet, but the marked main trails still remain popular, especially on weekends.
