askersund the sheep troop for a last inspection and rotation, we left our campsite on the Gรถta Canal and headed towards the northern reaches of the Vรคttern and the land in between the great lakes, stopping to visit at Askersund on the edges of the Tiveden Forest. Once an important trade and industrial centre—a zinc mining operation occurring nearby—that heritage reflected in the the symbol of the city, according those rights despite its small size, a smith hammering an anvil, also sort of a mascot, atop city hall (Rรฅdhus)—and ensemble of old wooden fishing houses and a monumental church overlooking the harbor. Afterwards we headed on to Vรคrmland and the community of Degerfors.
