My husband and I went hiking today. For a couple of years now we have been planning to walk up to a view point in the hills behing our house. It's in the middle on the hill you see in the first picture. The place is called Raudmoldheia (Red soil heath directly translated) and it's approx. 600 metres above sea level. It isn't too long but it's quite steep so the last two hikes we've done has been to prepare ourselves for the top. As you can see, there is still some snow left, but it's no problem walking in suitable shoes. When we went out, it was quite cloudy and windy, but the closer we got to the top, the warmer and sunnier it got . We stopped halfway to the top and had lunch. (Food never tastes better than when you eat outside.) I was quite exhausted before we ate, but afterwars I felt really fit to continue to the top. The reward is view of the lovely mountains in Vesteraalen, the mountains surrounding Narvik and also Andoya, where the asfalt actually blows off the roads during winterstorms and cod blows up on your doorstep (I'm not kidding, promise!) And Mother Nature rewarded us with the best possible weather when we finally came up. I hope the photos show what a splendid day we had. We were out for more than four hours and we have more than 200 photos that needs organizing. Please check my husbands website in a couple of days to see more photos from this trip.
