A short but lovely vacation – part two: Valdresflya

After a quick meal and a coffee at Beitostølen, we continued north across Valdresflya. We were going slowly, with frequent stops to enjoy the weather, the fresh air, and the beautiful scenery. The road is 1389 meters above sea level at its highest point. It is about 90 kilometers from Beitostølen across to Vågåmo in the beautiful Gudbrandsdalen valley.

I live in a part of the world called Norway with my wife and two daughters. I worked as a telecom engineer for 20 years. Nowadays I am attending a helpdesk supporting colleagues with computer problems. I am also a hobby photographer who believe we ought to pay more attention to how we treat our planet and each other. I trust the reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and I am disappointed that leading politicians in my own and other countries more or less have been ignoring warnings from the scientists for 20 years.
