And a little more more

OK, as it seems that I can´t really stop blogging: here are some photo´s from our hike a couple of weeks back.

William and I brought a camera that failed us immediately, so these are taken by our hiking companions, Rico and Evelyn. Thank you to them!

Day 1

Going down the Caroline-valley...

and along the beach towards Deltaneset.

Where we stayed the night. In this cabin.

Day 2.

Looking for fossils.

There were heaps of lovely fossils in the hillside (Janusfjellet) right next to the cabin, and we had a great time searching for the nicest ones. We couldn´t carry much with us, but we took a few.

This is the area where they found the pliosaurus a few years back. However, as the area was huge and the fog was thick, we didn´t discover the exact spot where they found it.

Lunch-break and then onwards...

...to the next cabin at Diabas, only a couple of hours away.

Day 3

Heading back,

crossing some dramatic ravines made by the melting ice earlier in the summer.

Some of the numerous reindeers we saw along the way.

This reindeer-foal was very curious about us.

And finally, after six hours, we´re walking down the Louise-valley towards Adventfjorden. You can see the airport on the other side of the fjord. Nearly home!

A great trip although not so great weather. We´re already thinking about when to do it next:-)

And then a little more from the arctic

It seems the polarbears love to cuddle too... At least the bears in Manitoba, Canada.

More from the wild and hostile north here.

Can´t help myself - got to write a little more

I´m returning to Svalbard this weekend to do two things - go hiking and open a small exhibition in one of the local café´s (Fruene kaffe & vinbar). I´m exhibitng photos this time - you can see one of them underneath and more of them here.

And that´s all - I´m not starting blogging again, I´m not. Not now, anyway.
