good old Leirvassbu

Leirvassbu one of the best cabins anywhere, and certainly a very nice place to spend a few days even with a broken ankle - the views and potential for trips are stunning - top right photos actually show the route up storen and the turtagrø swiss chalet

på storen

the jewel in the crown - a must - a stunner - one to dream of - so we started early - on the 1st top for 2nd breakfast and then climbing the 2nd & 3rd by 2nd lunch at which point the weather turned - not today - retreat - home, to be saved for another day....damn, thats broken, really quite sore - get me to the doc on comes the bird - but not before the boys lower me down extremely professionally, thats what all the training and practice is for...thank you
