Thank you again Per. That GPS you have is worth its weight in gold!

This one I would have been able to map, even without the GPS. :-)

This is also a very good photo under the prevailing conditions Amelia. It's far better than mine, so I won't publish my version,... yet.

Are you fiddeling with the NVE-atlas? Let me know if you need some help. ;-))

My little computer and its user found it difficult to navigate that map Per, but I'll take your of word for the route from dam. I might post my view of 'The Hall of the Mountain King'! ;-)

Mmmmmm, it appears that the Ghost train is closed today, you must have your fun elsewgere!

I would have liked to have seen inside the ghost train Bonnie Lad, but we could only manage a tantalising peek into that window on the right. So it was right up to the mountains and the snow next stop. When/if you come to Norway, I'm sure Per will take you up here. ;-)

If only that were true they would be paying us for using it Like

Haggs - LOL !

It is, to some extent true, electricity here is cheaper than it was last year at this time. :))

Norway has an open electric market, integrated with the other Nordic countries. Export and import is routine over the direct power links to Sweden, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands. The country imports electricity at night when the price is low, and exports it by day at a high price! Clever eh?

And even uses the cheap power at night to pump some of the water back to the reservoirs.
