Bymarka 2.0

Because Alix and I traveled so much during the week, we decided to take this past weekend a bit slower. In traditional Norwegian fashion, we decided to go on a Sunday hike. So this past Sunday, we along with several other families piled onto the tram to go to Bymarka.

The last time I went to Bymarka was in September, but I was quite happy to go again because Bymarka is a fairly large city forest. It is 80 square kilometers (just over 30 square miles) and contains 200 kilometers (124 miles) of hiking trails, which means that there was still much we could explore. Unfortunately, because it was mid-October and we’ve experienced rain the last few weeks, most of the trails were fairly muddy. On the plus side, Alix has gone to Bymarka more often than I have and she was able to direct us around the many bogs that have formed in the park.

I have been told by people who love me that some of them really just like the pictures I post, so here are a few for you to look at. Unfortunately, our trip to the Lofotens has spoiled us a bit, and Alix and I were definitely less appreciative of the landscape since it couldn’t really compared to what we had just seen up North.
