By far, the easiest top on Sognefjellet

Saturday, and we checked out from Mysusæter and Rondane Høyfjellshotell in the morning. Today would just be a transport leg to Sogndal, as we were to meet up with good friends in the evening.

But the dogs needed a walk along the way, so we stopped on Sognefjellet to visit Prestesteinshøgdi – a “bonus peak“, in respect to the low vertical gain and short distance.

Our route up and down from the highway across Sognefjellet

There was nothing about the weather that resembled mid-summer. There was even fresh snow a bit higher up.

Not exactly summer feeling…

It was altogether a short, but very nice round trip before returning to western Norway (well, strictly speaking – this top IS in western Norway).
