Morning in the Fiord

The town of Geiranger at the head of the fiord.


Dalsnibba is a viewpoint near Geiranger at an elevation of 1,476 m (4,843 ft).
Schist outcrop at the lookout.
That's the road down there.
You can faintly see the road snaking around down there.
Lovely example of mylonite, a cataclastic rock.
A storybook sod-roofed house.
Geiranger Church, 1842.

Sailing Out the Fiord

The Sevem Sisters again.
