Sunday Tour - Geitfjellet 24/9

I think this was our fifth Sunday in Trondheim, and probably our fourth Sunday tour. As I've said before, in Norway you go on tours on Sundays, and that's that. It's a tradition that I definitely can get behind. There's a number of reason why this cultural movement is beneficial to Norway as a society. For one, it gets people out and moving, and that's about the best thing one can do for ones health. It makes a lot of money with all the gear that is sold, it helps to keep public transport to and from trail heads and nature reserves, and it makes for a happier and more friendly vibe. On  a Sunday, there's typically a lot of people on trails, especially the more popular ones, but it's actually not as annoying as you'd think. People are nice, and you feel connected in a way. Working physically towards a common goal, the end of trail or the peak of the mountain, is sort of bonding, in a weird way. You don't have speak to, or even look a anyone, but you feel connected anyway. Everyone benefits from this.

We went up to the peak of Geitfjellet, 416m above sea level. Drove the van through a bunch of steep and narrow streets to the start of the trail, or rather a parking space close to where a lot of different trails started. We picked one that seemed the best, but somehow we anded up on very wet ground. We thought we hade taken the main pathway, but after a while we saw a bunch of people walking on planks on the other side of the wetland (morass?). So we crossed the it, got wet feet, and walked the proper trail to the peak. Had nice views, some coffee and then took the same path all the way down to the road. Great Sunday tour with great views! I think I forgot to turn off the watch when we drove home, but it stopped on the peak or something.
