Varden 3

In a recent post there were pictures of our second family attempt on Varden – the local hill. This week we had our third attempt, and we would have reached the top had we not started to run out of daylight. It’s a walk with many possible paths, all up through the birch woods which are a characteristic of North Norway (at least at lower levels). We took a route on the sunny side, but with quite a steep drop off from the path, which isn’t really too bad, except for the distraction of the view across the sea to mountains of Senja.

Below are pictures. There’s also a partial panorama here.

This has also been a busy week, so look out soon for more posts and pictures as we try to catch up on family happenings.

  1. Hello to All,
    Just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed your photos and descriptions of Norway and news of the family. So glad to hear that you are adapting to your new home. Summer is winding down here; school begins in 4 days. Autumn is in the air and so are the mosquitoes. May God bless all of you. You are missed!

      Lovely to hear from you Doris. School starts here on Wednesdays, so big changes ahead for Susanna. Mosiquitos are about to make a blog appearance . . .
