Grønndalen – The Green Valley

Vi følger idag Grønndalen, og som overskriften indikerer på emgelsk: The Green Valley.
En vakker dal med mange naturopplevelser, men som tilsynelatende fører ingesteds hen, bortsett fra til ro og fred i sjelen og naturopplevelser! Riktignok finnes det noen sideveier, men de er alle såkalte bomveier som man må følge frem – og tilbake, Men bruker man bilen, så vær oppmerksomme på at veiene til tider er ganske smale og at rygging kan medføre hjertefeil! 🙂

Today we are following  ‘The Green Valley rd.’ or (the local name): ‘Groenndalsvegen’!
It’s a relatively narrow road that leads nowhere exept to peace and quiet in your sole as well as beautiful experiences of nature!  Which means that you’ll have to come back the very same way as you drove in! Yes, there are sideroads, all so called ‘toll roads’
and so narrow that backing up (when you meet another car) may induce a heart failure! 🙂
Vi stopper et minutt eller to ved Flatsjøen og lar roen senke seg, Dette er vakker natur!
We stop the car for a minute letting peace of mind take hold. This is beautiful nature!
Vi oppdaget fort et lite problem: Selv om veien her er bred nok til at 2 biler kan passere hverandre, så vil en parkering langs vei fort kunne avstedkomme farlige situasjoner!

We soon became aware of a slight problem: Even if the road waswide enough to allow for two cars passing each other, there were no room for parking along the road sidek, and doing so could quickly generate dangerous situations.
Her lever dalen virkelig opp til sitt navn: Grønndalen!
Here the valley is really living up to its name: Thre Green Valley!
Ja, det bor faktisk folk her inne! Jeg er ikke sikker på om huset nærmest er et bolighus eller en fritids-hytte, men det spiller jo mindre rolle? Vi aner også konturene av en slalombakke der oppe i åsen? Og da er det jo naturlig at det også finnes hytter i området?
Vi fortsetter vår reise i neste reportasje!

Yes, there are people living their lives in these surroundings! Whether the house in the middle of this picture is a regular dwelling or a holiday cabin, I really don’t know, but – it’s of no importance anyway! You may also see the outlines of a skiing slope at the top the hillside, and then it’s to be expected that there will also be a number of holiday cabins in the area?
We’ll continue our little journey in my next report!

    Wow! You’re on a roll! These are great shots, Svein!

      Thank you! This is probably were I remind you all that I have been ‘rolling’ since 2012 on this platform and – if you only try, you’ll find dozens and dozens of such trips throughout Norway?! And 75% of you were never here when those reports were published.
      They are all free for you to enjoy!

    This looks just so amazing, tranquil, I can see. Totally untouched and simply beautiful!

  3. Cool, I love Norwegian roads and would love to write my own adventure story/book. Considering I studied history, I would probably connect with people along the route, such as Norge på Langs.

    • Seenorway says:

      That’s a good idea! But it will take some time since Norway is a pertty looong country!

      • I’ve read it could take five months. I wouldn’t even be able to do it right away, since I’m not that skilled with outdoor camping, mapping, etc. I’d likely set out a general plan and have some things organized to write about beforehand.

        • Seenorway says:

          It really wouldn’t surprise me all that much, however, much dependant on how massive work you plan to do interviewing how many – about how many things etc.
          An interview could be over in 10 minutes and it could be taking a couple of days?!
          The country is a total of 1125 miles long (by air) but sticking to our roads I expect you would have to add another 30-40% – at least!
          The number of stop-overs will have a great impact on time as well as costs, and you have to think hard about how many books you’d have to sell to make this work?

          • That’s very true…I’d aim to hike it and camp along the way. It’s still a future project to plan out. My first aim is to simply move to Norway.

            • Seenorway says:

              Camping would also be impractical large parts of the year as the Nortern part of Norway has no sunlight during winter, but a lot of snow and freezing temperatures! This will probably have to be done inside June-September?!

    You just wait n’ see, David! Next report I’ll be partly a foot, I think? But there were some cars passing behind my back when I found myself a safe shelf along the road! 🙂

  5. A road that leads nowhere….. my kind of road. Thankfully even here in the UK there are still plenty of roads that do just that and give you endless pleasure in the quest for tranquillity 🙂
