The Green Tunnel

Green Tunnel

One Thousand Years...

I use this old road sometimes. It is called Blåkullavägen. It dates back a long time. Just before this green tunnel you can stop and have a look at the Viking era runestone by the side of the road. The inscription reads: Sven had this stone raised after his father Rodisl. The snake on the runestone symbolise Jörmungandr. If you continue towards the horse farm at Blåkulla you can use the tunnel to get over to Ormsta and that is what I did.

Great shot. Love the bending road landscape the most. It directs your eye in a direction and drag you in.

I would like to bike this road and I'm sure Lois Anne would love to run it! Especially on a hot summer day!
