Kiel to Bergen, the mini series. Part 14, in which we are in the snowy part of Bergensbanen minutt for minutt

And now we’ve reached the heights where there is fresh snow! And also where there are wild rivers. Don’t know which I find more exciting :-)

Ok, yeah, it’s definitely the rivers that I find more exciting. Also, isn’t it funny that at first glance, the river seems to be flowing left-to-right, because that’s the direction in which the waves break? It’s flowing right-to-left, though, and the waves are breaking in an upstream direction because the water is just flowing so fast, it’s ripping the carpet out from underneath their feet, so to speak.

And now we have arrived in winter wonder land :-)

…where there is some new ice on the more sheltered parts of the lakes, too!

And now we on our way back down on the west side of the mountains. Snow only on the higher peaks, not at ground level any more.

And now it’s properly overcast and occasionally also snowing!

But let’s end this part of the journey with this beautiful outflow of the lake, and the standing waves that look as if they were braided into each other. So pretty!
