Jan 1 2018 – Rjåhornet

Deep snow hike after dark with Karma to my local mountain. Good to kick off the new year with a hike!

Jan 2 2018 – Blåtind

Another hike in deep snow, up a very steep hillside with snowdrift against. Strenuous, but it’s all forgotten when we get to the top.

Jan 3 2018 – Melshornet

After two hikes where I had to break the trail, I chose to go to Melshornet – where a track is almost guaranteed. A very nice evening hike with Karma!

Jan 4 2018 – Geitnausa

Working in Ålesund, and as always I do a hike in that region before taking the ferry back. Today, we followed a well worn snowy path from Turheisa to Geitnausa on Blindheimfjellet. Very windy on top!

Jan 6 2018 – Gyrinakken & Heida

Today it was too windy to expose the dog to higher mountains, so we stayed in the Gurskøya forest and hiked across Gyrinakken and Heida.

Jan 7 2018 – Røddalshorn

Still rugged weather, but a ski-trip (solo) to Røddalshornet should be OK. After a nice ascent, the weather got worse and the descent was not fun.

Jan 7 2018 – Huldrehornet

Back home after the ski-trip to Røddalshorn, it was time to walk the dog. We walked from my house up to Huldrehornet and returned via Myrvågskogen. At times, a struggle in the deep snow.
