Spontanous weekend trip to Dovrefjell national park - what a great idea! International hiking team (Spain, Latvia, Czech rep.) had two main goals: to reach the top of Snøhetta (2286 m) and see muskox. Both were accomplished. Conditions were the best possible ones - no wind, clear sky, temperature around 0-5 degrees. In total 55 km in two days (Kongsvold - Reinheim - Snøhetta - Snøheim - Kongsvold). I must go there back in winter to cross country ski.
Before start, just one picture from friday afternoon, when I went fishing with Albert to Byneset. We got no fish, but we observed porpoises (small whales that look like a dolphin - see here).
