I'll return soon and finish blogging about the rest of our journey. I have a LOT of pictures to work through!
Greetings from Norway!!
I'm posting the first pictures of what will be a very extensive blog entry, once I get home and have access to all the data files and videos of our trip here.
Tomorrow is our last full day in this picturesque country. We have enjoyed the warm hospitality of Rich's relatives. I have tried to capture just some of its beauty, unsuccessfully. Hopefully once I have access to everyone's data files, I'll be able to share just a small window of this wonderful adventure we have shared here.
Above is one of the fjords of Norway, Lustlafjord . . . a unique landscape primarily found here, where vast and deep arms of the ocean carve ancient paths into the land. I think this is one of the best pictures I took . . . capturing the deep blue of the water, reflecting the sky, the lush green of the spring growth, and the snowy mountains that were melting all around us, cascading multiple waterfalls. Click on the picture for a closer view.
Below are the peaks of the backbone of this country, Skagastølsnebbet, the highest mountains in Norway. One of the multiple streams flows away as the spring melt progresses.
It is a magnificent country . . . and I feel wonderfully blessed to share the adventure, to be invited to come here, and to begin a new life with Rich here witnessed by his family and distant relations from the country of his family's origin.
I'll give a full posting as soon as I am able!
