Sunday June 21st: Hike up the Mountain

On Sunday Jan took us hiking up a mountain near his cabin. It took us about 2 hrs to get to the top~ the kids came too! I was so impressed that they made it all the way up there! The pics below show some of the hike. 

We started off in sort of “marshy” terrain ~ then moved to steep muddy forest~ and then it was rocky. The views were amazing. See below.

Does anyone know how to flip these vertical pictures upright? I saved it as a vertical photo, but it keeps flipping this way when I put it on word press 😦

View from the top. Representing TX 🙂 and appreciating the amazing view. The North Fjord is to the left of the picture & the South Fjord is to the right. Fjords were created by the glaciers ~ check out this website for more info: http://www.fjords.com/

This is a picture of all of us 🙂 We made it to the top of the mountain!! Can you believe it?!!! We are all so relieved that we finally made it ~ that’s why we’re all smiling so broadly!

We got down a lot quicker than it took us to get up there~ and then the Nora wanted us to jump on the trampoline! And we did b/c she was  just so darn cute and it’s hard to resist her! Talk about over-exhaustion! After that though, we were able to relax in their hot tub and relax our muscles. 

We got home that night around 9:00ish and crashed hard. Needless to say, we were both hurting on Monday am! 

That’s all for now folks~ we head down to southern norway tomorrow am early (Kongsvinger & Oslo)~ will keep you up to date as we get internet access. We’ll be back “online” for sure on July 8th. 

Love~ The Petersons
