This Saturday morning, I walked from my house, up to Dyrkyrkja (192m), passing a cool rock, proceeded to Lidafjellet (200m) before ascending Huldrehornet (271m). I descended my normal Huldrehornet route, and was back home 1h:45m after leaving. Total distance was 5km.

What a morning! If someone knows the name of the clouds on picture #3, please send me an email!

Postnote 16/12: Many thanks to Ragne and Edvin for their answers! These clouds are Lenticular clouds (Altocumulus lenticularis). It sure helps to ask..

Huldrehornet is another of my new local tops. The summit is 1,6km from my house, and it's a practical target when I only have time for a short hike. On this evening, I couldn't find the trailhead in the dark (I had only been there once before), but I found another trail a bit further south. I expected this trail to go up the mountain, but it didn't. I ended up in the valley between Huldrehornet and Rjåhornet and had to fight my way through thick forest on Huldrehornet's southeast ridge.

Wandering about in the forest, at approx. 8:45pm, I had a vague feeling of being the only one on the mountain. It would be tempting to admit that I am the oddball, but when I reached the top 9:10pm, I was confident that there is something "wrong" with everyone else. It was just beautiful to be up there. Watching shooting stars from a mountain top is quality time.

I decided to run down the path down the northeast ridge, which is easy to follow. After one ordinary and two spectacular falls (icy ground), I walked the rest of the route. I entered the road by Djupvikvatnet 250m north of the car. It was a memorable evening walk.
