I had been looking forward to this stay since I originally added Norway to my bucket list six years ago. Knowing that it endcapped a week of trekking in the majestic highlands towards the end of the 2022 season, it was to be one of the highlights and rewards for the 50+ miles conquered.
After the stunning Trolltunga sunset, we slowly meandered the 1.5 miles back to the three glass dome huts adorning the top of the gorge fighting the end of twilight. Our frozen dinner we had all carried in our day packs was now coming to a boil and we hunkered down to a nice meal at 9:30pm in the warm confines of our home away from home.
Being a night owl and not wanting this night to end, I frequently popped outside to get lost in the sea of stars and breathtaking full moon. The wind brutally ripped through my scarce wardrobe, so I always quickly retreated to our cabin and continue to lookout through the glass panels in hopes of catching a glimpse of the northern lights. While I was unsuccessful in my quest, I was able to finish my book in this majestic place while snuggling into my cozy sleeping bag on top of the wool animal skins adorning the massive bed my fellow travelers were all sound asleep in.
I eventually dozed off after 3am and obviously missed my coveted sunrise. With eye mask and earplugs, I staved off rising until breakfast at 9am. Porridge and toast filed our bellies prior to one last, long trek taking us back to civilization.
My thoughts wandered as I realized my last vacation of 2022 was coming to an end, but I also was so proud to have ventured out once again to test my limits and be reenergized by my love of nature.
