The Backyard (well, mountain) in Tyinkrysset

2 Comments

Sometimes walking out the door and around back is the best way to hike.  We bushwhacked up through juniper and blueberry towards a small lake where fish are rumored to live.  Tyinkrysset, Norway is beautiful.

This little stream is just up the road a few hundred meters.

Here are some pictures of our walk in the mountains.

Our intrepid hosts at the top.  Our fearless leader Nova was dressed for the weather.

 

We love being in Norway.

Coffee and brown cheese?  Nova says yes.

   

Kongevegen, Norway Hiking and the Stave Church

1 Comment

The trail, built by hand with horses and carts through steep mountain passes, is incredible.  Like a movie set.  This is one hike in Norway not to miss.  We did a few kilometers day hike to the Stave Church completed in the 1180s.

The Kings Road is what Kongevegen means, BTW.  The scenery at peak Fall is stunning and magical.

Romey and the logo bench.

 

Just up over the pass the first view of the Stave Church.

We approached from behind (with a herd of sheep).  These are not the sheep!

Don’t eat the mushrooms.

A quiet moment of conversation.

A boy and his dog!

An impressive waterfall on the drive home.

Coffee stop.

And back home for beer and a small fire.  This is the only kind of smoking that I like to do.
