Wilderness Travel-Day Five

A travel blog entry by lmccall


... to say, this spike in temperature was a real treat! After the hike, we started the two hour voyage along the fjord to Lofthus where we will be for the next two days. To pass the time, I broke out my card game Scabble Slam. Not a bad way to pass the time. We arrived at the Hotel Ullensvang family owned since 1846. The composer Edvard Grieg spent many a summer here composing music. The hotel is fantastic! The beauty of the mountains and fjord are just ...

It was 866 m above sea level at the top, only half the altitude of Prescott, but there was still a lot of snow and the trees and grass were not yet green. It was pretty chilly too! I think it has more to ...

Peace and quiet in nature's beauty

We had the best intention in the world of getting up very early this morning to witness the sailing of the ship thru the Hardanger Fjord, but alas, sleep got in the way! There is no port in Ulvik able to handle a ship of our size, for that matter there really isn't even a port to say, but what a scenic spot to anchor! We are at the top of one of the fjords off of the Hardanger Fjord and it ...
