NORWAY, Part 2 july 18 - july 22 , 1999
After almost 9 weeks of pretty good weather, the rain finally caught us
(These are pictures only so it may take a while to download.)
Ack! Get me back to the Home Page
We arrived to the Sogn Og Fjord, the most famous for it's beauty. Even with the constant rain, the views were quite impressive.
Then the temperature dropped . . .
. . . And we joined others in the search for a more comfortable climate . . .
. . . and it appeared we made a wrong turn.
Approaching the glaciers
Coming out of the mountains
The cruise ships come through the magnificent fjords for a stop in Geiranger
Scaling the Trollstigen pass, just south of Andalsnes, the weather FINALLY cleared.
All this hard work, I need a Snickers Bar!
Here come some scenic twisties
We reached the campground, and pitched our tent to view Trollstigen
We met these 2 guys on holiday together, one from Finland, the other Germany -- We were surprised when we heard them speaking English to each other.
After raining all night, the morning sky was beginning to clear . . .
. . . but we didn't trust it, and got ourselves a cabin . . .
Later, the area was flooded
We left Thursday morning (in the rain, of course) for Trondheim, and our train/plane weekend journey to Martina and Todd's wedding in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany
