A weekend in October. A weekend free to do whatever we wanted.
And we were in no doubt, we wanted to go up in the mountains to visit my brother in law and his wife. And an extra pleasure, Marta wanted to go with us :-)
Arne and Lisbeth, Terje's brother and his wife, live south west in Norway, at Moi, where my father in law also lives. But Lisbeth grew up at Røros, the UNESCO Heritage Site up in the mountains south of Trondheim. Lisbeth's childhood cabin is still at Røros and several times a year they drive the 12 hours up there. To live the perfect simple life.
Marta, Terje and I came up there Friday night, and walked from the car to the cabin under a million stars.
Saturday, after a long breakfast, we drove in to Røros for shopping and a visit to one of the multitude of charming cafes.
But the weather was lovely, and the colours of the autumn burning. The mountain was calling our names.
We packed a huge backpack which we let Arne carry, and started our hike. Marta and dog Winnie in the lead.
There are moments in life you can live on for a long time.
Mountain hiking moments are among them.
We are walking towards winter here in Norway. For the moment autumn is my favorite moment.
Will this change when winter comes?
