First, a couple of views of the misty, fog shrouded Nordfjord on our early morning drive to Briksdal Glacier--birches, turquoise waters, distant villages with the little red camping huts:
As we neared the glacier we saw many waterfalls on the rocky mountains:
Now the hike starts! And it took much longer to do than actually distance involved because there were so many photo ops. In particular, I was drawn to the many different lichen and moss covered rocks along the trail. Notice that on one of these rock, hikers added a small stone to a "shrine" as a meditation, a wish, a prayer perhaps?
And then there were the treescapes with rough barked birches, ferns, and moss covered stones--and tiny dewy wildflowers blooming in the grass:
And finally, the main attraction--the Briksdal Glacier!
