Hiking in Jotunheimen — Part 3

We packed our stuff before the rain came. I can’t remember if I stopped shooting today because of the rain or if I was too tired. Probably a bit of both.
We are now one day away from Glittertind (2,465m).

We reached Spiterstulen station and it looked like something out of LOTR. We all started humming the Riders of Rohan tune.

After a nice break and more waffles we went back out in the rain again.

We camped close to the bottom of the mountain Glittertind and went to bed early. Before I fell asleep I read a few pages in my Moomin philosophy book.

Time to walk across Norway’s 2nd tallest mountain.
But first, blueberry porridge.

Once we crossed the river and reached the path up the mountain, Eric read us a poem about water.

I had long-johns on but I was still cold…

Time to celebrate today’s effort!

After a good nights sleep we all felt happier. The sun was out and we had a lot of time to just relax now.

And we’re back in Gjendesheim! Tired but happy.

And that’s it, our trip to Jotunheimen. Here’s a map of our route and camping spots.

Hiking in Jotunheimen — Part 2

After some morning-yoga in our hiking gear we were ready to go! Today we are moving in to colder regions..

I didn’t mind the rain, I had a new rain jacket and trousers. And I was listening to my hiking playlist which includes classical music, post-rock and indie folk songs. There isn’t much else to do when it’s raining than to keep on walking.

During this trip I’ve got plenty of good shots of this young man.

It was soon dinner time and we decided to find a good place to set up camp.

Because of my super-strength I accidentally ruined my tent by breaking a pole in half.  Luckily I could use the repair kit from Fredrik’s tent to fix it.

Good night

Good morning! Time for breakfast.

We started off by walking 300m upwards to reach the snow covered areas and icy lakes.

When we first saw snow we were playing around like kids. (It’s exciting because it’s the middle of the summer)
I hate snow now. especially walking uphill in it.

IMG_3909 IMG_3910

Not far to the next station now, where we’ll treat ourselves. With waffles.

IMG_3914-2 IMG_3915 IMG_3916

And then out in the cold again to find a good place to set up camp. (where it’s not covered with snow)

And then, just before going to bed we got a bit of sun.

Tomorrow there will be less snow. But more rain. Good night.
