“Travels to a Different Time” : 15July1975: Dombas, Norway: Norwegian Mountain Climbing

My goodness waking up to a sunny day! Kiel my Danish friend and I headed out into town on his motorcycle to get some grub for breakfast. After we ate breakfast we both washed some clothes and decided to go for a hike in the mountains. We hopped on his East German motorcycle travelling about 10 kms out of Dombas. We headed straight up the mountain and it was hard going at first. Beautiful hiking with waterfalls to the left and right. We stopped a few times to fill up our bottles in the cold-water streams. After 3 hours we stated our final ascent up past the snow and this last part of the hike was not without risk however after reaching the summit were rewarded with a tremendous view. Green valleys below and snow-capped mountains in the distance. We spent 20 minutes admiring the view and in 3 hours back to the motorcycle. Zoomed back to the hostel and stopped for ice cream and my ice cream ended up falling out of the cone on the sidewalk. The second one behaved itself. We had some supper and met a couple of girls from South Africa and went to play some Frisbee. In bed after listening to one of the girls play her guitar.
