The wooden church of Hartikka by lake Kuusvesi is long gone. The church served the parishioners for less than 100 years before the second church of the Laukaa parish was built at Pellosniemi, close to where the centre of Laukaa is today.

Metsähallitus. As I cross a narrow wooden bridge I begin to wonder whether Kirkkoniemi cape is actually an island....
There are plenty of old pine trees at Kirkkoniemi forest but some harvesting is still allowed in the area. I hope there isn't too much felling done here though. The needle-covered path is in very good shape and so much nicer to tread on than asphalt.
