    It is approximately 3.5 km and 350 meters elevation from the nearest parking space. You must use your legs or have a dispensation for the use of off-road vehicles.

    A killing in Aalesund is something that doesn't happen often, but this afternoon one person was killed in broad daylight and on a public place:

    Not much is known and the Police is keeping things to themselves, but it was first reported as a knifing.

    Those cabins have a spectacular view... how do they get up to them, is there a road or do they have to make a strenuous hike?

    Snow blowing off the high ridge of Sula on a clear but windy day:


    These huts on Sula are occupied most day and nights:




    Not sure what's the attraction being up there in all seasons, aside from the nice view of neighbouring Aalesund:

    I must admit i have never been up there.

    It is that time of the year again and time to remember the big fire in Aalesund in 1904:

    Here is an interactive description of what and how it happened:

    This morning the ice was still there and what had become water yesterday had frozen during the night, just adding to the bone breaker conditions:

    After a very hot (37c) few days here in Australia these photos look sooo inviting. Hope the snow is still around in a few weeks when I go back to Bergen for another round voyage on the inimitable Lofoten.

    If I haven't said it before I'll repeat it now; the weather in Aalesund is changing, not only by the season but by the day and sometime by the hour.

    The bus depot on a nice morning with fresh snow and -1C:

    That was yesterday.

    This morning; wet, 5-6C with bone breaking conditions:

    Not too difficult to see why this is called one of Norway's most beautiful cities!
