Today I want to take you for a drive.. first we drive to the next town …that takes about 15 minutes…. next we have to cross the fjord, by taking this ferry.. we’ll just let those cars get off the ferry first…
Oh my it’s a viking ship! But we are driving on……. I will have to tell you about this ship later… we drive over a mountain and back down, over another mountain and back down.. and we come to a place called Stryn… “beautiful Stryn” as they say… This is a haven for skiiers!! But we are just driving straight through town…
OK… looking behind us now, we can no longer see Stryn…. and we are heading up the mountain again!!
It’s beautiful here isn’t it??
Oh.. there’s snow up here.. wait a minute….
I think we’re going to have to have some help.. AH! Thank Goodness they’re already here…
There’s alot of snow here huh??
Wonder how they can find the road??!!
OK.. we are on the top.. now we take left.. and almost make a u-turn… heading back, but on a different road…. and heading back down off of the mountain too…. and NOW I have cheated a little.. it’s summer when we come back down.. naturally that woouldn’t be the case.. but this place has to be shown as a summer place.. we have reached Geiranger!!
This is a really deep fjord.. and we have cruise ships coming in here during the summer.. and it’s a very popular place to visit.. you would really have to BE there to see how majestic the mountains are!! Just look at that boat.. it looks really small.. but, it’s a cruise ship!
Here we are looking back at the mountains we came down….
This is the church of Geiranger.. it has 8 sides to it.. and was built in the mid – 1800’s..
Geiranger is on UNESCO’s list of world heritage places… and is definately worth seeing. AND if you do.. come by my place too ;-) .. I am just a couple of hours away..
I thought we’d take this ferry back home.. going the sea-way…. It’s VERY expensive, but HEY I want to show you our beautiful nature.. and not going by the same places twice!!
By the way.. those waterfalls you can see.. are called the 7 sisters :-)
