We flew separately to Oslo and I met Darrell in our hotel room near the airport. We set our alarm for a 20 minute nap (jet lag...) and then went for a long walk through the woods and circled two different lakes. This was the quiet one!
|Why Norwegians settled in Minnesota - it looked like home!|
The other lake had runners, bikers, barbecuers, and kids pushing each other off the dock.
|Kids and water are a great mix!|
|Norway's west coast is incised by fjords. The Lofoten Islands are in the background.|
|Pancake ice off the south coast of Spitzbergen|
|First view of Longyearbyen - Glacier in background!|
|Signpost at the airport|
|Note the old coal mine on the side of the mountain behind the school!|
|May 20th, with 24 hour sun, and snow on the ground.|
