It was a quite OK Wednesday evening, and I was working in Ulsteinvik. A good opportunity to visit Leinehornet. The mountain would be snow-free by now, and I would have sufficient light for the pictures. I had forgotten to bring my GPS, but finding the trailhead was easy. I assumed that there would be a trail up the broad southeast hillside, and I picked the correct road that led up to the trailhead. Having parked, I asked a young boy about the path, and he confirmed that I was at the right place.
My dog "Troll" and I left the trailhead 15:45PM. The path was narrow, but still well worn. Small obstacles (roots, rocks, etc.) made the ascent quite strenuous for Troll, but he climbed and he climbed and he climbed. After a fairly uneventful hike (for me), we reached the top 16:15PM. A man and his dog arrived at the same time, and we chatted for a little while.
The wind was quite cold. The dog waited patiently while I took pictures. He knows the routine by now. Once I put the lens-cap back on, he started to head down the path. He recognizes the "signal". The views were excellent. I enjoyed a beautiful mix of colors as the sun was shining on Saudehornet, and Stadlandet was hidden behind rainclouds. The afternoon sun was spreading spectacular rays on Sandsøya, and I already started looking forward to upload the pictures on my computer.
We were back at the trailhead 16:55PM, and thanks to a slightly delayed ferry, we reached
the 17:30PM ferry to Sulesund by the closest margin possible. It was yet another fine afternoon
in the Herøy region.
|On a side note, earlier in the day, I noticed a funeral agency car with a lit cross on top. Just like the cabs have, when they are free for a ride. My mind started to ponder on this. Yes, those cars all have a cross on top, but I never saw them lit. This can't mean that the funeral car is "free for a ride"? I'm sure - there wouldn't be a market. In the unlikely event that this was the case, they should have a tune/theme, informing everyone that "the car" is in the neighbourhood. Just like that ANNOYING ice-cream truck. Perhaps Beethoven's Fifth would be an appropriate tune. Not that any of this stuff matters much, but it's good to know that the brain is functioning, even after a hike.|
