Nuuksio National Park in the autumn

Nuuksio National Park is an area of forest, rocks and lakes in Espoo, Kirkkonummi and Vihti, just 30-something kilometres from to the west from the city centre of Helsinki. I hadn't been there for while until this September when made a walk with Antoine, a French geographer, and Dora, a Labrador Retriever of my neighbour.

We walked from the northern end of Lake Siikajärvi to Kattila. Although we made detours to Haukkalampi and Iso-Holma lakes it was only a seven kilometre walk. It was a nice sunny Tuesday day and the park was practically empty of people. We didn't see anyone else there except a forest guard in his car when entering the park.

Below you can see 30 photographs taken at our walk.
