Klaus saw a photo of the "Stigastein" overview in a brochure and suggested it as a nice place to go next. I've been there already on a former trip and I said it's really worth to drive up there.
Certainly, I forgot about the way up there. Not really forgot rather blocked. It's a very narrow 1 lane road with lots of serpentines going 5 km up the mountain. There are no safety fences - just 15 cm high bricks - and the sheer is right beneath. To make it worse the road is in a bad condition. I never knew how long 5 km can be but finally I made it. Some of you might say that's not a big deal but don't forget I'm a lowland-girl driving a camper ;)
By mischance it started raining when we arrived the overview although the weather in the valley was great :( So, we took some photographs and drove back to Aurland where we found a nice camp ground.
Since it was the first warm day for a long time we decided to spend the rest of the afternoon at the camp ground enjoying the sun. We had some coffee and played cards.
In the evening we had a walk with Buddy down the village.
