Amazing Norway - day 4

We started out our journey from Kristiansund on the fourth day.  Our goal this day was Dovre and Snøhetta viewpoint.   From the parking lot we had to walk for 1,5 kilometers to get to the viewpoint. This area is probably one of the most beautiful and majestic in my opinion. To watch the bare landscape seemingly endless towards the horizon gave me a sense of tranquility.  Snøhetta is the highest mountain on the photo below. It is a dream to visit this mountain one day.  Snøhetta viewpoint - the building is designed by the architectural firm Snøhetta. It is a minimalistic and beautiful construction in my opinion.   After our journey through Dovre we went down to Jotunheimen to spend the night at Brimiland Fjellstugu. This was one of the nicest places to stay, and the food was amazing. We went for a late afternoon walk in the area, and my husband was fishing while I was photographing.  TO BE CONTINUED....

Just a couple of minutes after this photo the fog was everywhere and we could not see much so we went in to the cafe area to wait some more.  About 15 minutes later the fog was nearly gone. I just love the architecture of the cafe and surrounding facilities at the viewpoint.  I visited Trollstigen in 2009, and at that time there were no viewpoint like today, so this new location gave me a whole different and an a
