After attending at the Photo Fair in Oslo (2-3 March), where I had an exhibition of 34 large photo prints, we went straight to Jotunheimen, where we (Erlend and I) were planning to tent a couple of days in the mountains over 2000m above sea-level. Since Erlend has a long experience in the mountains, I had no worries to set out for such an adventure.
In Jotunheimen, some roads are closed for the winter, so we had some extra kilometres to go in order to reach our destination in the Smørstabb-tindane. Starting at the height of 900m, in three days we walked approx. 45 kilometres on skis, 1100m up and down hills, with fully packed sledges and photo equipment.
Although meteorologists failed when forecasting cloudless weather for this period, we had a great time tenting on the snow-covered Leirbreen glacier, climbing mountain tops and -ridges around. This time the weather was calm up there, however, avalanches and high, vertical walls of cliff or snow can make this place extremely dangerous in bad weather.
