Autumn in the Mountains

Autumn is the wonderful time of year for a walk in the mountains. This image of mine is from Norway on our way to Grimsdalen, Dovre.

He found himself wondering at times, especially in the autumn, about the wild lands, and strange visions of mountains that he had never seen came into his dreams. ~ J.R.R. Tolkien

Love Magic and Midsummer

We have been here before in winter when snow and rain vied for the right to drench the presumptuous creatures who step out on the bare and magnificent rocky beaches.
Where the wind did its best to complete the last part of the work by pushing the haughty people to the ground.
Us who thought to master the elements rampage.
Now it’s the fabled Midsummer, where anything can happen. Days, where herbs are enchanted. It’s about Freya and Frey, Vikings, rituals, and worshipping fertility and a rich harvest.
Love and magic are associated with Midsummer. If you pick seven types of flowers on the way home, and hide them under your pillow, the dream of your loved might come true.

Midsommer

Hiking Besseggen Ridge, Norway

We have been here once. On a beautiful day in September we took the bus further and further up in the mountain, to finally enjoy the fantastic view of Gjende the beautiful emerald-green lake surrounded by high mountains. The green colour is the result from glacier run-off which contain clay, rock flour.

The river Muru originates at the glacier Austre Memurubrean and runs through Memurudalen then finally empties into the lake Gjende right next to Memurubu. The river is about 10 kilometres (6 mi) long and is the primary source for the lake Gjende.

Vi har været her en gang. På en smuk dag i september tog vi bussen højere og højere op i fjeldene, for til sidst at nyde den fantastiske udsigt over Gjende, den smukke smaragdgrønne sø.

Den grønne farve er resultatet fra gletscherens afstrømning, der indeholder ler, sten mel.

Elven Muru har sit udløb fra gletsjeren Austre Memurubrean, og løber gennem Memurudalen, for endelig at munde ud i søen Gjende, lige ved siden af Memurubu. Floden er cirka 10 kilometer lang, og er den primære kilde til søen Gjende.
