Kayaking

Fog approaching
Drifting fog
Going back

Brilliant weather, sun and temperature at several + deg. Snow melting, being wet and soft ("rotten" is the term skiers use). Decided to skip skiing and instead bring the kayak out of its winter hibernation this afternoon. Were to embark when a northerly wind started to bring in fog from the Varangerfjord. Rather slow going straight into the wind, so I made the trip a short one. My paddle tecnique probably a bit rusty too. Hardly touched the paddle on my way back, surfing is fun!

Tenting at Valvatnet

Brought my tent, sleeping bag etc. and camped at Valvatnet. Took some photos at sunset (appr 2200), the nights are reduced to a few hours of twilight now. Bright sunshine on sunday. For some obscure reason I had forgot to bring the sun-lotion. The forgetfullness earned me if not a bloodied nose, at least a red one, worthy a Falstaff or Sir Toby Belch. The view from Pettersengaisa (PettersenĀ“s Mountain) was magnificent, though. A raven flew by, its feathers glinting in the sun. Mountaintops are exposed to the wind, giving it ample opportunity to create strange forms and patterns in snow.

Went skiing to *Oretoppen, the summit rises only 485 m above the sea, but it is one of the taller mountains in S*or-Varanger. Windy on the top.


*O is not O but a certain Nowegian vowel
