Well, before we arrived Haukeliseter we had a long way to go. Along the road we did some sightseeing. Not far from the campground there was a nice waterfall. Later we had lunch at a rest area which was located at a river which has been used for hydropower therefore it was nearly dry. Its rock formations were beautiful. I don't know where, but in a small village we've visited a tiny outdoor museum of local history which was very nice. And not to forget the old wooden house built in 1666 in typical telemark style.
In the evening we finally reached Haukeliseter. There are no campgrounds around but in Norway you are allowed to stay where you want. As long as you don't disturb people or destroy their belongings or the nature. We found a place at the banks of a lake where we joined some other campers. After sitting in the car all day we wanted to stretch our legs. I opend the door and a strong cold wind blew into my face. Oh dear. It was only about 5°C "warm". Definitely time for our winter clothings and warm socks. Additional to that we pulled our water-proof hiking shoes on, got the camera loaded and off we went.
Klaus was as impressed as I was at the first time and immediately loved that place although it welcomed us with its frosty breath :) Tons of photos were the result :o Enjoy.
