A short but lovely vacation – part three: Høvringen, day one

After crossing Valdresflya we arrived at the small town Vågåmo in the Gudbrandsdalen valley. We had a short stop in Vågåmo before we continued to Sel and from there we drove up the steep and winding road to our destination, Høvringen. We would be staying at Høvringen Fjellstue, which would be our base for hiking in the Rondane national park. After having checked into our room and had a look around, we decided we had enough time for a short hike before dinner, which would be served at 6:30 pm. The weather was incredibly nice, we read 16 degrees celsius and almost no wind at all. So we ended up at a small mountain top called Haukberget, about 3 kilometers from our “base”. Here are some pictures, hope you enjoy.

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.
