On a windy day, we went uphill at Lifjell from the upper parkinglot.
First stop on a small top at 928 m asl. called Bökstulnatten.
That top is now to the left on this picture, taken a little further
up the hill.
Even at this time of the year, near middle of October, the autumncolours
As this was our first attempt to find out more about this area -

It wasn't just as easy all the way.
two weeks earlier, we made a trip to the other side of Lifjell.
Up the Årmotdalen (Valley of Aarmot) to Gavelsjå, a

Others were, too. Can you find it?
There are four of them, on this picture..
...then only three on this one...
I think there is only two this time.. no - there are three!
Now, there are four here, of the seven we saw alltogether.
and before they flew away, we got 6 ( think) of the 7 in one picture.
We could not have chosen a better day for climbing that late in
In the background you can see the lake where we live on its right
This is from the top of Gleksefjell, at 1121m asl.
A wonderful sight in all directions.
Then down again to Sandsea, an hour away
where we jumped into the water, but got quicky up again......
