Day 13 - Hydnefossen - strike that, rest day

The plan for today was to have a crack at what we expected to be hardest climb of the trip, Hydnefossen, a great sheet of ice above Hemsedal.

We packed our bags the night before. Alarms were set for 4:30. But in the morning Nick put his head around the door and said, "if we do the climb tomorrow instead, we could go back to sleep!" I readily agreed.

So, another rest day.

I read Ender's Game then we watched the film. The book is better.

I dared Nick to go and sit on the village jetty in his dressing gown. He didn't hesitate.
