Yet another windy November day, and this time Anne, Karma and me went on a quick hike up to Holstadhornet (531m) together with Lena, Terje and their very sporty dog Donna.

The first part of the path from Hovlid is excellent, but once you're above the forest the rest of the hike is wet and muddy after rain or snowmelt. And today, the path was incredible muddy. In addition, there was a cold wind.

Most of us were a bit cold, seemingly except for Karma - who seemed to enjoy herself from start to end - as the below picture gallery might emphasize...
