Plateau

camp location

I woke up this morning to nothing but clouds and wetness. Uh-oh.

Ew.

I went in to the cabin and asked about the weather, and was reassured that the sun will burn off the fog and it'll be a crystal clear day again today -- phew!

So might as well get to hiking, I suppose! Soon thereafter, the weather turned (as promised) and I had ample time to dry out all of my gear -- all the way down to my socks!

Today was definitely a stark reminder of what it means to be on a plateau. There was virtually no elevation gain (or loss) all day -- just smooth flat trails without any shade all day. There were a couple of stretches of snow that I had to walk across, but nothing like that I saw on the horizon. There's another staffed cabin tomorrow; I'll ask there what the deal is.

Coincidentally, that cabin tomorrow morning is my exit point, should I need to abort. And even more of a coincidence: if I have to exit, it would be exiting out via Eidfjord, which is where my ill-fated Bergensstien attempt ended two years ago.

Curious.

Goodnight!
