Walks in central Finland

Went for a couple of shorts walks near Jyväskylä in central Finland at the end of April. Muuramejoki is a river with a short nature trail along its shores. The river flows to lake Päijänne and is popular among fishermen.

The nature trail in April is still partly covered with ice and a few spots of flooding water. The river valley is interesting in all seasons with changing variety of birds.

Northern parts of lake Päijänne was not free from ice. The ice fishing and skiing season had ended though some were still trying their luck. First spring birds had arrived to the shores.
