Up and out over the next fjell and down again into Voss. Again a fantastic trip up and over the fjell and down into Voss. It is all still under umpteen feet of snow and all sorts of activities were going on. Folks out on langlauf skis, others in bikinis in own built windbreaks out of snow sunbathing.
Then it took ages to find this spot but it was worth it and wild at that. N 60°35'37" E 06°52'13”
Nothing new spotted during the day.
27.05.12 From last camp to Ferry spotted plenty of “if required wild sites” for the next trip. Ferry trip was a short one but the road after the Ferry is pretty narrow and we had not realised we were in the middle of a local Bank Holiday so every Norwegian camper van was on the road. Went up to Eidfjord, memory trip, for a coffee and the view.
After that had expected to camp wild and were surprised to find this delightful little sight on the exit of Odda at the head of the lake. N 60°03'10" E 06°32'40”
28.05.12 Same site, loafed around, tanked up on some sunshine until mid afternoon.
Then took a hike up the mountain to gander at a massive waterfall on the other side of the lake.
29.05.12 Up and over to Røldal, collected a Stav Church T-shirt then down the E134 to the 9 and followed it for the rest of the days drive. Stopped off in a place called Hovden to shop and found a Hotspot so used the opportunity to post an update to the Blog, catch up on e-mail and check the Bank. Not far from there camped wild on top of the fjell at a picnic site off the road. N 59°27'43" E 07°24'34” which was a good site but a wind got up and it was bloody cold all night. Map tells me the river we are camped alongside is the Odra.
Caught sight of Canada Goose, one lonely one, and a male Goosander. Sandpiper all over again.
30.05.12 Drove down to Lysebotn right at the East end of the Lysefjord. The ride in is incredible and the drop down into Lysebotn goes down the most incredible serpentine I have ever driven. Have to try to remember to keep count of the hairpins on the way back up. It is all very spectacular but not the best place we have visited. Anyway done it now.
N 59°03'43" E 06°38'53”
Head out tomorrow and will probably be in Halden by the 4th or 5th of June to crash down in on leg to Puttgarden then potter home for the 13th June.
Which will probably make this one of, if not the, last posts for this trip.
Nearly forgot off the 9 spotted a couple of Goosander pairs and similar count of Canada Geese. Only mention the geese as the had goslings with them.
