That's Sætersjøen - where we took a short break. I am kind of amazed that I found it on the map now, almost two years later...!

This is not a slim stone with some random scratch-marks - though, admittedly it kind of looks like that. Well, it is slim but the scratches are actually runes. The inscription (partly seen in this shot) means, according to a nearby information sign: Roar raised this stone for Olve, his father. The stone dates to the first half of the 11th century and who Roar and Olve were is not known.

The top of this very tall, and slim, rune-stone had been broken off, but was later found at a nearby bridge and reassembled. The stone is from the area, but it has been moved around a bit so it is probably not in its exact original position.

One of the older houses in the area, full of holiday cottages - this one, back in the day and long before my time, actually belonged to my grandfather and my dad spent a lot of time here when he was young. It was great to see the place that I had heard so much about, in person.

In Norwegian this is known as a hytte - it is not a permanent residence, but is a home away from home, a place to get away to, to relax in and get close to nature (which actually means that the translation to cottage isn't quite spot on, but English doesn't have a perfect translation for the word).
