Today is June 27, and the snow has disappeared in large parts of Rondane.

For weeks, it is predicted fine weather, and it's time to go to the mountains!

It is very early, but it may be OK to see the mountains as the early summer.

Plans to move from Sjusjøen to Hjerkinn summer of 2008.

It is a fairly long tour of approx. 205km. This is an area I have not been in before.

Should use from 8 to 12 days for the trip. I look at the map that there are some heavy but great stretch to go. This can be a great trip.
