Weekly Photo Challenge: An unusual point of view

wernernokota9“Colonel Boon, the patriarch of Kentucky. This venerable and hardy pioneer of civilisation emigrated to an estate three hundred miles west of the Mississippi, in his ninety-second year, because he found a population of ten to the square mile, inconveniently crowded!” – James Fenimore Cooper, The Prairie, 1827

As a comparison, North Dakota has a density of population round and about 9 to the square mile these days, while one of our northern, by many considered utterly desolate, parts of Sweden we call Jämtland, seems almost crowded with its 18 souls on each square mile.

Ought to be plenty of room for wild horses still.

    • Of course, you are right Seth, Lappland is the norternmost, LOL. A few years ago I was traveling between Kiruna and Riksgränsen and I met only two cars every hour of driving, very nice experience. I kind of miss it.
