After work in Ulsteinvik, I decided to stop by Myrvågane and take a look at the progress of the apartment that I've bought. It's supposed to be ready next summer, and I really look forward to no longer commute between Ålesund and Ulsteinvik. The distance isn't the main problem. I'm used to driving long distances, but the ferry is a nightmare. In any case, next summer, work will only be 10 minutes away.

There wasn't much to see yet. The concrete foundation, and that was pretty much it. And now that I was here, I might as well visit Huldrehornet. A low top, but it still ranks on my lists, and I reckoned the views weren't too bad. After all, it was one of those few sunny days we've had this autumn. If it hadn't been for a fierce wind, I would have chosen a higher top.

I tried to find a route from Haugen, but found none. I rang a doorbell, and a lady suggested a good path for me. She gave me accurate instructions, and I found the path right away. The time was 15:35PM when I left the trailhead, and my dog "Troll" walked 50 meters before I heard the well-known complaint; "You know ..."

With my aging buddy in the backpack, I arrived Huldrehornet 16:04PM. The wind was hilarious up here. Strong gale force. Keeping the camera steady was a futile effort. I've never tossed away so many pictures after ANY hike. Taking zoom pictures was impossible. Quite a contrast to 200m below, where I arrived the trailhead with the car roof down...

I didn't consider any further exploration of this area (I'll have plenty more opportunities later) and headed back down the same way. Troll was now walking. Eagerly. And by 16:30PM, we were back at the car.
