Climbing the mountain!

A repost from Joy's Life. which I  ant to share to my followers here.


At last, after many years in Norway, me and my hubby climbed this mountain to see the famous" Pelkusstein"



Pelkussteinen is clearly visible from the county road 231.  Flat terrain at first, steep with boulders on the final leg.

Pelkussteinen is a large rock located in Rusasetfjellet, and it is named after the farmer Pelkus from Opphaug who  fled here. The legend says that Pelkus killed his neighbor after a prolonged dispute and disagreement. He was put under arrest in Austråttborgen, but managed to escape one winter night, and fled towards the huge boulder, before he fled over to Sweden.



Come along and I will show you the way:)  



These flowers decorated the path








But every forest is hiding something like these:


An old abandoned hut......





    Scary?



 Good thing that I was not alone....




Hope you won't  give up. We are getting nearer...



Just a few boulders away....



Don't forget to enjoy the trail....



Reminds me of something.....


Closer shot...



it is like  a faucet.....what are you thinking?

I thought it was a snake....


 A heart to see here too!




more flowers up here



And now, we reached the destination. Nice view




Here is Pelkussteinen.  Stien mean stone in English. The hiding place.



Under the rock where Pelkus had hidden.

I don't think this is a place for me....



Maybe, if I just can remove this big rock...

Well, it was too heavy, better to take some rest....



and enjoy the scenery









Saying goodbye with this picure taken after descending down the mountain. It is colder here

  5. This is an awesome post - the scenery, the story, the flowers. You have a beautiful way of putting things together. Norway is such a beautiful place. Joy, it is is such a "J-O-Y" to know that a kababayan of mine lives in Norway, and she is also a blog friend as well.

    Blessings and love,
