Nuuksio Now: Week 37, 2018

Nuuksio National Park during week 37, between 10.-16.9.2018.

There’s a lot to be found in the forest this week. We finally get mushrooms,  lingonberries are ripe and some cranberries are also good for eating. There are some yellow leaves on the ground and in the trees, there’s a bit of rain that makes the air smell of fall.

The weather is mostly partly cloudy with some rain in the beginning of the week. The temperatures are really nice for a long walk searching for mushrooms.
