Greetings Astrid, That is a big tree. We had a hiker hit and killed by a tree that fell on him in a wind storm. What are the chances? Be careful out there so you can post more beautiful Norway photographs.

After a wind storm the commune of my hometown cut down 1/4 of the forest nearby to prevent from such accidents. So when you enter there is a huge clearing, now. :-)

Hmm. I have to say I think it's a bit rough to cut down the forest to prevent people having trees fall on them. As Rich says, what are the chances? Following that logic, they certainly should have destroyed all cars...
