Went on Hassafallsleden today in the great spring weather, 7,5 degrees Celsius outside and the sun was shining down on us. Not a typical situation for the past weeks so I had to take advantage of it.

It was also a good opportunity to try out my new shoes rather than just walking around the house. I must say that they’re very comfortable but I’m also glad that I only took a short hike, 4km, rather than going for a 7 hour, 20km+, like we did the last time because I had some blistering going on. My left heel started to get a little red and few more hours I would probably have had a nasty blister right there. The other foot however didn’t have any issues but I think that I tied that shoe a little looser so that it moved around more easily.

Finally at the top time for some coffee!

Finally at the top! Time for some coffee!

The top of the knoll was not the highest climb in the world but the view was great! Met two other persons up there but they were basically leaving when I got there. So I enjoyed the view and a nice cup of hot Joe and then went back down.

Finally home again I went online and ordered the topographic map over Jotunheimen to start preparing this summers trip even in more detail. 🙂
