Greetings from Norway!

New postby SNEAKers » Thu Oct 31, 2013 1:57 pm

I have been so bad with posting trip reports this summer... I have many that I've given up on, but wanted to make sure to share this one. Maybe you have been here, heard of it or plan to go one day! The place is called "Preikestolen" in Norwegian, which translates to Preacher's Chair or Preacher's Rock.
Some info below:

As much as I would like to say that I got to hike out there and have a great lunch, I didn't! Instead, I am here for some helicopter related business and got the opportunity to fly up the Fjord past the Rock around the back and "over" the cliff! Some pics are below

What a beautiful place Norway is!

Yep! Wish I could've been able to take a pic from that angle too! Would've meant that I was able to hike up there! Apparently, the day I flew by and the day the third pic was taken are about 1 in 20 to have weather as nice as that...

Lots of people on top. Great days always brings out lots of hikers. But, the view is incredible. Thanks for sharing!
