4pm – We start at the parking area at Østre Søbad south of Silkeborg and hike 6km to Korsdalhuspladsen in the middle of Silkeborg north forest where I camped last month as well. This is a really neat spot. The day temps are around 27 degrees Celsius and night about 15 degrees.

Today’s hike, aprox. 26km,  takes us across all the high points around the lake district and we pass Himmelbjerget again. I visited here on my trip to the area last month as well. Two or three km from Himmelbjerget we camp at Storeknøs.

After dinner there is time to watch the sun go down. This is better than Saturday night TV.

After walking in 27 degrees Celsius heat all day and 26km I was dead tired and very hungry.

We hike aprox. 22km today back to where we started at Østre Søbad. It is still very hot today. I can’t wait to arrive home and take a hot shower and rest.
