Glatt... / Icy...

Looking at elk tracks and excrements

Noen elger har kosa seg i skogen bak huset vårt i det siste, så vi så
mange spor og elgbæsj da vi gikk på tur idag.

Some elks have been wandering in the forest behinf our house
lately, so we found lots of tracks and excrements
when we went hiking today.

Elk track


Fox track

Vi fant også spor etter reven.

There was also tracks from a fox.

Taking a break on the way up.

Små pauser må til på tur opp.

Some small breaks is needed on the way up.

Getting a ride up the hill ;)

Andre passer på å få sitte på de bratteste bakkene ;)

While other make sure they gets a ride up the steepest hills :)

Too much ice :(

Men da vi kom opp til gapahuken var det is overalt etter alt regnet
som har kommet den siste uka... Så da måtte vi finne oss en
annen plass å være litt lengre ned i skogen.

But when we came up to the lean-to, there was ice all around it due
to all the rain that's been pouring down the last week... So we had
to find another place further down in the forest.








No hike without a chocolate bar :)

Endelig litt snø og skøyteføre / Finally some snow and ice skating

Finally some snow. (3/356)

Endelig kom snøen vi har venta på!
Så i dag har vi kosa oss ute i timevis.
Og etter litt måking var skøyebanen på vannet klar :)

Finally the snow we've been waiting for arrived!
So we've been outside for hours today - having a great time.
And after some shoveling the lake was ready for ice skating :)

Shoveling snow to make a place to skate.


Skating.

Lighter days are ahead :)

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!

Godt Nytt År!

cold

Det er kaldt for tiden. Her har temperaturen ligget på mellom -15 og -20
grader i flere uker... Så det sier seg selv at det ikke blir mye farting i
skogen :( Men vi er ute og lufter oss innimellom. Små korte turer
så ikke føtter og fjes fryser.

It's cold around here noe. The temperature has been between -15 C and
-20 C for weeks now... So there has not been much trips in the forest :(
But we get outside to get some fresh air now and then. Short trips
so the feet and face dosn't get frostbitten.

Det er ikke mye snø her, mest is rundt omkring. Men vi fant frem
akebrett og gikk i akebakken en dag det ikke var fullt så kaldt.
Det var litt hardt i bakken, så nå ønsker vi oss mye snø!

There's not much snow here, mostly ice. But we found our sledges and
went for the hill one day the temperature wasn't so bad.
Now we're just hoping for lots of snow!
