Family trip to Galdhøpiggen

This weekend we had a great time- the whole family went to Spiterstulen where we stayed from Friday to Sunday. (today...) Yesterday we all hiked up to Galdhøpiggen- the highest mountain in Norway (2469m)
We started out early in the morning in the fog- there were 14 of us (all family/inlaws)

Soon the fog started lifting- and it turned into a beautiful day!

Sigve, Ola and Svein taking a break.

Here we are at the top!!

On our way down- the whole hike was on rocks like this, and some snow.
It took us almost 5 hrs. to get up to the top, and 3 hrs to get back down.
It was such a great day-we only wish Kristine was with us- maybe we'll have to go again later, when she's able to come with us.

Sigve relaxing- the view going up was amazing!

Ola found a nice spot to relax as well...
At the top my brother surprised us with pancakes- I have such a sweet brother!
Hope you enjoyed the pictures from our hike- today I'm a bit tired, sunburned and sore.....
