An early-May walk with my friend David C. Pugh and my dachshund Troll. David had shown me a couple of good trails on Gravdalsfjellet one week earlier, and we continued this Saturday with yet another trail.

We started off from Vestlundvegen 12:20PM and reached the top of Gravdalsfjellet 13:00PM. The weather was unstable and we had (very) light snow on top. There were rainshowers in all directions, so we were quite fortunate to stay out of the worst weather.

We followed the trail towards Betanien on the way down and walked along the road back to the car, which we reached 13:50PM. A short and nice hike.
