It's starting to get autumn colors.
We drive to Skäralid. It's always nice there.
Almost full in the parking lot.
It is a Danish autumn holiday, almost all cars are Danish signed.
We start with a coffee in the restaurant.
Will probably be the last for it is to be closed,
the county administrative board wants to use the whole house for its Naturum.
Much of the charm of Skäralid will disappear,
you want to be able to eat a piece here.
The sun is shining, we are sitting outside.
A little cold, but the corona does not allow coffee inside.
Goes on to Kopparhatten.
Many Danes, especially on the platform at Kopparhatten.
We walk Offavägen down into the valley.
A sign urges people not to build cairns.
Make a small excursion up a steep slope,
do not build a cairn. It is a nice walk along the river,
which is mirror-bright. A heron keeps us under surveillance.
Meets many Danes. Is back at the pond.

It is becoming autumn colors. We drive to Skäralid.
It's always nice there. Overcast, but no rain.
Many cars in the parking lot. It will be a short trip today.
Takes the stairs up to the path to Copper Hat "Kopparhatten".
Stops at all views of the gorge.
On the other side of the gorge, people are out on the cliff "Hjortsprånget".
Looks like a small child is with them. Many Danes here.
We take it easy. Many walk with dogs.
It is only one kilometer to the Copper Hat.
We are soon there despite the slow pace. Nice view as usual.
Several standing on the terrace.
We try to take a selfie. Does not work out.
A woman offers to take a picture of us.
On the terrace are two dogs quarreling.
We go back, so does our photographer.
There is a buffet in the restaurant.
Looks nice, but is too much today.
The alternative is mushroom soup, let it be that.
Creamy and very mushroomy. Good.
Drink Gyegården's apple juice.
It starts to rain when we drive home.
Stops at Emmaus flea south of Ask.

Drive to Skäralid.
More who did the same thing.
The parking lot is full.
Goes north side of the pond.
Upstream along the river.
Beautiful autumn colors.
Passes screes and steep cliffs.
Much water in the river.
Rapids in a few places.
Wet on the path. Sometimes boardwalks.
In one place the boardwalk is underwater.
People cross between solid land.
Long leaf decorated boardwalk.
Takes the Offaväggen up to the Copper Hat - Kopparhatten.
From the hat is as usual a nice view.
Many have a coffee with them.
The parking lot along the road is full.
Through autumn beech forest to the stairs down to the restaurant by the pond.
Drive to Röstånga to have lunch at Nya Stationen.
Have only brunch, a kind of English breakfast.
Not good. A little interesting decor.
May 29, 2017
With the job. After an interesting guided tour of the closed nuclear power plant
in Barsebäckshamn, we drive to Skäralid for lunch and a short walk.
Going up to Kopparhatten, then Offaroad down the valley.
On the scree when you descend into the valley, someone has built cairns.
It's lush. Do not see any traces of the recent fire beneath Kopparhatten.
Walk under rocks and screes.
along the river back to the Skärdammen.
In the dam swim swans.
July 16, 2011: What to show in
Skåne for a Dutch couple? From a flat
country. Some mountain? They have a proposal, Skäralid. Drive
there. Walk the
short track, up the steep stairs. They are young and walk easily up,
manage to keep up. Through the beech forest, past the view
drops steeply. Rårödspågen was according to the legend
a boy who fell down right
here. Where the body hit the ground ran a spring up. We admire the view
Kopparhatten, go Offavägen down to Skärån, where
coffee/tea is taken. Walk back
to Skärdammen along the river, much boarded. Passes the spring,
up after Rårödspågen, the water is drinkable. Do not
know if my Dutch visitors
are so impressed, he is a devoted Sarek Walker. The comparison is not in
favour av Skäralid.
25 July 2010: Bus to
Skäralid at Söderåsen National Park. Viewing Visitor
there is are exhibitions about nature in the national park and beautiful
tree pictures. At the pond Skärdammen are people thinking about
where to walk. We walk
the 'steep' staircase up to the northern side of the valley. Enjoying
the soft green beech forest. Continuing along the edge of the canyon's
side. The most famous place is probably Kopparhatten. The place can be
by car. A ramp makes the view available to wheelchair users. It
is a view
worth seeing. Walk Offavägen down to the brook Skärån
at the bottom of valley. Screes line the
valley. Eats the prepared lunch, partying it up with some wine.
the blue trail along the river to Korsskär. The trail is bumpy,
cross the river on a bridge, first boardwalks then a rocky path
along the screes. Change sides again to fight up to Liagården,
shelter, outdoor pump, and fireplace. You can stay in the cottage,
there are bunks
but no mattresses or blankets as far as I can see. Returning on the blue
towards Skäralid along the south side of the valley, a trail, dirt
path. There are some nice view points, the most well-known is the
ledge Hjortsprånget. The path continue steeply
down back to Skärdammen. Take a beer and halloncanapé in
the restaurant while
waiting for the bus.
