Stamp of the Day: Rapadalen i Sarek

This Swedish stamp is from Rapa Valley in the Sarek National Park in the northern Swedish mountains, 'fjällen'.  One day I would like to visit this place, a wide area of wilderness.  The valley floor is a flat river delta filled with meandering arms of the streams of Sarek River, and it is surrounded by high mountains.  Willows, moose, falcons, lemmings, and rain are abundant, but not many people get here. You can see images of this gorgeous place here, and read more about Sarek here.  Here is a gorgeous photo from this wonderful Swedish place.
