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 :)


  1. I'm so amazed by how we both live in cold climates but they're such *different* types of cold. I can't imagine January without feet of snow on the ground! Beautiful photos, as usual.

  2. We usually have snow in January too. But this winter have been cold and snowless so far... But we're still hoping for piles of white snow ;)
