The Enterance!

Den første tabben var jo å velge feil vei inn i Hemsedal-området jeg ville besøke, men ‘aldri så galt at det ikke er godt for noe’, heter det jo? Og jeg fikk anledning til å fyre av to panorama-bilder som kan kanskje gi dere et bedre inntrykk av hva slags natur vi skal bevege oss inn i? Det første bilet er tatt i retning av ‘Tuftene’,
My first ‘miss’ was to choose the wrong turn-off from the main road, but as they say: ‘Never so wrong that it doesn’t bring any good’, and by doing this Isuddenly got the chance to shoot a couple of panorama pictures  that may be will give you a better understanding of the terrain we are about to enter? This forst picture has been shot in the direction of ‘Tuftene’!
Det andre viser inngangen til ‘Grønndalen, og en liten stund fremover skal vi faktisk følge
Grønndalsveien som følger elven gjennom dalbunnen.

The other shot show us the entrance to ‘Groenndalen’ (translated to ‘Green Valley’ ) and for a little while we will in fact be following the Groenndalen Road which is also following the ‘river Groenna’ through the valley floor.

    It looks beautiful, thank you for taking a wrong turn! I have noticed a lot of your language I can easily recognise from Germanic roots. Nice.

      Well, Ute, as you’ll probably remember we had a run-in with Germany in 1940 that lasted for 5 years. We have a number of words that has been adopted into the Norwegian language over time, yes, but many were there before the Germans came visiting us,
      Languages are intertwined all over Scandinavia. Swedes and Danes have no (or should I say ‘small’) problems in Norway and vice versa. Besides you’ll find that most Norwegians speak English, but one needs an opening to practice, to keep the language alive, so to speak. Like this blog is my way of keeping my English alive. When I was 20-25 I spoke German just as well, but with no chance to practice, it all fell into pieces over the next 30 years! That’s life! I’ve run into Norwegians that have lived the last 50 years in the US and –
      they no longer speak Norwegian!

    Lovely scenes with majestic mountains. I imagine those mountains are quite high and get pretty snowy in cold weather.

    • Seenorway says:

      These mountains are not of the worst kind 🙂 Snowy through the cold season – certainly, but that doesn’t take much here in Norway. An educated guess would be a height of approximately 4500 – 4700 feet? But then our highest peaks stand around 8000 feet! But they are not here. Not in this picture!

    Ja, årsaken er vel at veien ikke fører noen steder hen? Denne Grønndalsveien ender i 2 nye bomveier, og så vidt jeg vet er begge ‘blindveier’ uten gjennomkjøringsmuligheter?
    Jeg tror også at i alle fall den bomveien jeg fulgte er av noie nyere dato?!

    Ja, Må jo si at det er ganske utrolig at du og jeg som er såpass bereist her til lands ikke har vært oppe i denne dalen og sett oss omkring tidligere? Nå må jeg innrømme at jeg har flere ganger kikket opp den dalen ved passering på hovedveien nede i Hemsedal på vei oppover dalen. Men det ble med sideblikket
