While nature is paramount in the Norwegian mountains, humans have develpoed some some cool habitat-ness. Also, they are so tiny compared to mountains and waterfalls!

I love these plants, and grow them in Virginia in pots and the ground, but MINE SUC compared to these huge masses of them — thick, spongey wads that you walk on and around in the high lands of Norway. DSCF0242.jpgDSCF0181.JPGDSCF0182.jpgDSCF0184.jpg

Looking over a steep steep ledge and freaking out your friends at the same time is a rush. She is panting, I am stoked.

Planet….?

Phoenix Hiking

It was hot, because it was the desert. We brought water.

Hiked 302 to 304, around the loop, and back

Our original trailhead target was thwarted by park construction, so we simply added a 1.2 miles. The Pheonix Mountain Reserve is worth a visit.
