Sunday Hike

Sundays are popular days for Norwegians to gå på tur,  or go for a tour or hike, and at this time of year also go berry picking. We’ve happily joined in this tradition the last few weekends, and headed up a bratt (steep) trail to a hilltop with great views of the valley. And also great berry picking—blueberries and raspberries. We were joined at the top by at least 11 others, including a father with two young kids.

It also was the first weekend of non-leash law for Tika, and she was quite pleased to be able to check out the area at her own pace.  Greta also opted to hike down a short portion of the hill on her own two feet. It was slow-going, but we were very proud of her eagerness to walk on the uneven, rocky surface.
