Pk Solvågtind & Junkerdalen

In early August I spent three days in Junkerdalen and up in the hillside and summit of Solvågtind. Some really nice days and with a big hope to fly from the summit. That did not happened. Wind directions became wrong and the fog came and went in minutes. Last evening I felt there were a…

Norwegian Mountain Spring Time

Visited the family and the my home mountains last weekend in perfect weather and nice wind conditions. Got three summits, not very high, and could do it without skies.
