Nuuksio Now: Week 41, 2018

Nuuksio National Park during week 41, between 8.-14.10.2018.

There’s lots of colours now in the national park. Most of the trees are changing colour and dropping leaves, and the plants on the lake shores are beautiful in red and purple.

This week will start with what us Finns consider real fall weather, rain. Tuesday will likely be cloudy without rain, but after that it looks like it’s going to be unusually warm for this time of year. Excellent time to go smell the fall forest and pick some mushrooms!
