April 29, 2022

 It is a cold morning as I start to climb.  It is just Norway’s second highest pass.  After a few mile I can shed the rain gear and fleece jacket.  Cool winds helps a little.  At the top is a false summit and 5 more miles to go.  There I pile on the layers again.  This helps with the long cool decent, but I still need to stop to warm to warm myself.  The tailwind takes a turn to a strong headwind from the north.  My thermometer shows temp dropping as I drop in altitude.  At 40 miles the sun comes out and I camp in that little warmth of 38 degrees.  After a quick meal sleep over takes me.  A few flakes overnight. 


Time of Day 11:54 / Distance 40.1 m / Temp 34 / Total Time 13:39 / Moving Time 5:44 / Stop Time 7:55 / Moving Avg 7.0 /  Overall Avg 2.9 / Max Speed 28.2 / Temp Min 30 Max 48 / Barometer 1025 / Ascent 3170 / Sun rise 5:25 set 9:17 / Elevation 2695 / Max Elev 4584  Cloudy and cool

Love and Kisses
