    Okay, no bonus points for rain. Just put the clothes on, pose like an idiot, take a timed photo and post the results!

    Really like that coat and the boots, LAGuy. I think this is the best quality photo I've ever seen of you too.

    The sun woke us early on Thursday morning. Still not used to 4am sunrises and the noises that come with it. Our small cabin was on the edge of Kravikfjorden, it truly is awesome in the most literal sense.

    The sun rays were just starting to burn off the fog and low hanging clouds as we packed up our rental car, getting ready for the next leg of our road trip from Oslo to Bergen. We were warned about the weather, but it's been too pleasant. After the minimal "winter" of Northern California, I was ready for gloom and rain.

    Before we set off, I had to try out my new tenkara fly fishing rod. If there were any fish, they were scared away by my sloppy technique.

    This next leg of our journey took us straight through the Hardanger national park and the glacier. There was no rain, but it did start snowing for a bit. No match to the stutterheim rain coat that I brought with me in hopes of a downpour.

    Currently sitting in the Bergen airport on National Day, I think about how the whole country looks like Yosemite, and every road like Highway 1. It must be very easy for Norwegians to become jaded with international travel.



    Bonus pics!

    Only 2 entries so far, let's try for a few more before this closes. It's a cool challenge.

    I was going to get in on it, but a middle-aged guy standing in his technical rain jacket isn't going to compete against the photographic novels you kids unleash over here on SW&D. Gonna just shuffle back over to CM and argue against the old fops with their frigging neckties and their nipple-high pleated pants.
