Blåtind & Haddalshornet, Aug 20 2016

One of my favorite round trip hikes on Hareidlandet island.

Rjåhornet & Huldrehornet, Aug 7 2016

Another classic round trip hike for me, on Gurskøya island.

Røddalshornet, Aug 9 2016

This is a top on Gurskøya that I seek to when I want to get some altitude (relatively speaking) when the weather isn’t too great…

Sandvikhornet, Aug 10 2016

Another short, but nice hike on Gurskøya island

Osnessanden, Aug 12 2016

When I used to work in Ulsteinvik (our office has moved to above Ulsteinvik), I used to take Karma to this nice beach. It was good to take a break from the programming and let my mind wander on the technical challenges at hand – while Karma was running freely around…

The good life at Osnessanden

Nonshornet, Aug 19 2016

Trail maintenance on Nonshornet together with Anne. The sheep are rubbing on the sticks, and while the sticks are put firm into the ground, they don’t survive itchy sheep…

Anne and Karma on Nonshornet

Rjåhornet, Aug 22 2016

Above the fog on Rjåhornet. A good day to test if the marked sticks bring people safely up and down the mountain. The result was OK, but I built some cairns in-between…

Rjåhornet & Nakken, Aug 24 2016

A round trip across Rjåhornet and Nakken, checking if the firms were still firm in the ground. They were. No itchy sheep here…

Røddalshornet, Aug 25 2016

I’ve had a project in August – trying to get to the top of Rjåhornet (from the main road) in less than 20 minutes. I needed 4 attempts before I nailed it (19m:41s), but not today…

Rjåhornet, Sollia & Nonshornet, Aug 27 2016

This round trip hike was about checking the sticks that I put out there this summer. Most of them were firm, but ref. itchy sheep above – some sticks needed to be put back down into the ground…


Røddalshornet, Aug 29 2016

Another attempt to reach the top within 20 minutes. Today’s time was 20m:53s, but on Sep 9, I nailed 19m:41s…

Huldrehornet, Aug 30 2016

Today, I upgraded the trail between Leitet and Stemmedalsvatnet with more sticks, so the route matches the standard we’ve chosen to follow. It was a really, really, wet day…
