Couple finds 70 shoes filled with butter while hiking
October 10, 2003 (Stockholm, Sweden) — It's buttered sole -- but definitely not of the seafood variety.

A couple hiking in the mountains of far northern Sweden found 70 pairs of shoes, all filled with butter.

Officials have no idea who put the shoes there, or why. A provincial spokesman says the buttered footwear ranges from sneakers to boots. There are even butter-filled high heels and tap shoes. Each contains about a pound of butter.

Wonder if they were headed for Kebnekaise, Sweden's HP. Near the town of Kiruna in the Arctic, it's been a goal for years. Kiruna has air and rail service, but I don't know just how to reach the mountain from there, or when is the best time to go between the snow and infamous mosquito seasons.
