Snow-covered mountain ridge hike

urke1

Det var nok i seneste laget å begi seg ut på fjelltur over 1000m, men vi ga det et forsøk. Det er noe spesielt når fjellene får på seg vinterkåpen, plutselig virker det som alt er så annerledes enn hva du har sett på de siste månedene. //Perhaps a little too late in the year for a mountain ridge hike, we were well aware. But then again, who can resist? You know the mountains so well, you’ve seen them and hiked them for months. But somehow, once they get their white winter coat on they seem all sparkly and new.

Urke-egga ligger naturlig nok ved Urke i Ørsta Kommune. Det er to fjelltopper på turen, Maudekollen og Kloksegga. Like ved ligger også Slogen som vist på bildet over. //This mountain ridge hike is called Urkeegga, and is located above the little village “Urke” in Ørsta municipality. There are two summits on this hike, Mt Maudekollen and Mt Klokksegga. Close by is Mt Slogen, the mountain on the picture above.

Det er rart hvordan snøen sender deg rett i en mer barnslig stemning. //It’s funny how snow provokes responses that sends you right back to childhood, happy and carefree.
