Rødlandstua, Mar 30 2016

This morning, it was snowing. But then…

… it turned out to be a wonderful day. I was working in Ålesund today and due to the ugly weather this morning, I didn’t bring any clothes or footwear for hiking. But when the sun broke through I decided to do a couple of walks on low mountains in the region. I found it best to stay below the snow…

The first top was Rødlandstua in Brusdalen. The trailhead is well marked and easy to find.

I haven’t been on this forest top for several years and it was nice to be back. Even nicer was it to let the smell of spring sink in.

I was hoping that the entire forest was snow-free, but this was not the case. Fortunately, this is a popular top and I could follow in their footsteps.

This is a short walk – only 1,4km to the top, and the views are pretty amazing:

My original plan was to continue eastbound to Utvikfjellet, but because of the snow this was a no-go. Instead, I returned back to the car and drove to Sula to visit Leirvågfjellet (separate post)
