After we got off the ferry at Linge, which by the way is a place which I must make a post about some day because there is a very obvious Shetland connection, we headed for Sylte at the bottom of Valdalen.
It's a fairly typical little settlement, with the usual mountains surrounding it.
Here's a close up of the mountain in the previous picture. Can you see the snake?
Here's a nice mountain scene again. These scenes are getting predictable, aren't they?
We headed north up Vallldal, another valley which is filled with strawberry fields. On the way we came to one of the newest tourist attractions, Gudbrandsjuvet (Gudbrands Gorge). The story goes that Gudbrand, whilst running from the law, jumped the gorge at this point, and made a clean getaway. I presume that the lawmen in those days were, like now, too full of calories to attempt the jump themselves. ;)
This is a beauty, and shows Honey the Honda nicely parked at the side of the road.
Poor old girl. I don't think I've ever felt so sorry for a car in my life.
A quick inspection revealed that a radiator hose had burst. OK, not surprising for a 20 year old car, but damned annoying since there is no mobile phone signal at Stigerøra.
The next part of this story, once I dig out the pictures, will be a little bit about Trollstigen (the Troll Road), a little bit about a person scared of heights, and a few nice pictures. There will be no mention of any underwear changes which might, or might not have been needed.
Yun's aa fir enoo.
