23. July 2009
Day three at Håvard's cabin above Nesbyen, and another grey and windy day. We therefore decided to change plans from Ranastongi (1900 metres) to some small local tops. We only had a short spell of light rain, but throughout the hike it was windy and grey. After the hike we stopped at Nystølen and treated ourselves with sausage, chips and a beer (coffee for Håvard, the driver).
