N Norway in winter is a wild rugged place, but one that is almost painfully beautiful. Vista after vista drew gasps of amazement at what nature could produce, all topped off with a perfect icing sugar finish.
I've not gone all poetic, don't worry, but if you get the chance, come up here and experience it yourself. The cold is a force on it's own, today we experienced -38C and with a 10mph breeze it was so penetrating in a way that is difficult to explain.
We passed through an area still inhabited by the Sami people who herd the Reindeer. To say they are a tough, resourceful group is understatement on a grand scale. How they survived without the modern additions of electrcity, vehicles and oil is beyond my understanding.

|The Geo-point must be here somewhere and we've |
walked 2km so we will jolly well find it!
|How about that for the open (and icy) road - 600km like this!|
