Norwegian Mountains

Haugavarden, Feb 27 2005

Yet another gorgeous day, but time did not allow for anything else than a trip to the local Haugavarden (673m), the highest point on the Ulriken - Vidden - Rundemanen massif. I got a late start and everyone else was heading down while I was heading upwards. Me and the dog were walking. It was only possible to ski on the top of the massif, and I didn't bother bringing along the skis.

I headed up my favorite trail; From Sedalen up to Søre Gløvrevatnet, then up the Vasslifjellet southeast ridge and directly towards Haugavarden. I then headed towards Storefjellet (662m) before I started heading home. I stopped by Turnerhytten and had a nice chat with Ove Kobbeltvedt. We talked about the hut for a while, as I intend to write a piece about the hut on this web-site.

The walk took 3,5 hours, and it was the finest day in 2005 so far. A very pleasant temperature. As everyone else had left the mountain, I had the mountain all to myself on the way down. It was a shame to head back down, but work was awaiting.
