October has arrived and the days are getting shorter. It’s rainy but colourful.

Summer turned out pretty busy climbing and working in the mountains. 4 months mountaineering trips in Romsdalen is behind. Also a glacier course for people from Finland were success with great weather and good group spirit.

In Romsdalen it was mainly climbingtrips to Romsdalshornet, Kvanndalstinden and the other 7 “Mountain King and Queen” peaks. Climbing courses and easier hikes were also in program. I’ve met many interesting and nice people this summer. Thanks for the talks folks!

Now it’s time for some own climbing and traveling before the winter is here, and the snow covers the ground.

There will be skitouring, iceclimbing and avalanche courses to come. Also skitouring courses for those who are new to it. You can check out my working blogs:

for winter activities!

Here is some photos from summer 2013:

Summer in Romsdal has started warm. There is not much snow in the mountains anymore. It’s been pleasant weeks with lots of time for climbing and some trips in the mountains. I’ve also been working with a new work-website, check it out at http://www.skiandmountainguide.wordpress.com even it’s not finished yet.

Hope you all have had a good start for the new year 2013!

Since I’m getting a bit lazy to post here I can link to my friends blog, check out the last trip Hesteskotravers in Isfjorden at Susanne’s blog

It’s been a cold winter so far, and not much snow. But there is good conditions for example for scrambling in the mountains.

Oops, long time since last post!

Spring and summer are all gone, and now the autumn is full on. Guiding life in Romsdalen is been busy enough. Now it’s time for more quiet days and some traveling.

Inne i gresset

blir jeg bøyd

som et strå

          i sommervind.

Livet som var

gir meg jeget,

          og livet some er.

Det blir viktig

                    å gi etter,

                    og være seg selv.

Kjenne helheten.

Romsdalen in wintertime is more than just skiing.

When it´s cold enough and not too much snow down in the valley you can go ice-skating. It´s been lots of fun to play on the ice again!

Winter solstice

It is time for the longest nights and shortest days in the northern hemisphere. Also christmas time. But christmas is more than shopping, over-eating and crazy commercialized consumption time. It is time when the planet earth tilts back and the days starts slowly get longer and nights shorter, also the sun is at it´s lowest at winter solstice. This tilt happens on thursday 22nd at 0630 am (in Norway).

The darkest time of the year has been celebrated over centuries in many cultures all over the world. You don´t have to be a christian or other believer to enjoy this dark time of the year. It is a turning point when we start heading towards spring!

It is great to see things in a bigger perspective and follow the earths rhythm. One way to experience this is to go up to the mountains.

****

Feel the cold,

                    shortness of the days,

          beauty

and the light.

Music is the connection

          your travel in time

Moments of existence

Mistakes made

          Right things to grow with

Believe in good

                     no outer

                              just you

Emptiness

          brings something new

Beauty lies in its simplicity
