Two years ago me and Fredrik started hiking and since then we’ve had a yearly hike. After Kebnekaise last year we wanted more epic views and taller mountains. This year 5 of us decided to go to Jotunheimen, Norway. (For 8 days in August)
We arrived in Gjendesheim in the windy and cold evening. The only plan was go up 500m to find a good spot to set up camp for the night.
Today we’ll be going from Gjendesheim over Besseggen to Memurubu.
But first, some breakfast. I’ve missed waking up early (even though I’m always the last one to wake up) and cold after the night to go out in the sun to set up the kitchen and make some porridge and hot chocolate.
I’m happy we decided to walk from east to west, which meant we were going down Besseggen, not upwards. Carrying 18kg is enough fun as it is.
“It’s not even noon and I’ve done more things today than during the whole of summer”
We were a little bit too excited the first day and walked for too long without breaks. So when we reached Memurubu, at least I, was quite exhausted.
