I had a meeting at Longva this Monday, and had packed my hiking gear before heading from home. Straight after the meeting I drove to Indreflem and hiked Skulen. Back at the car I immediately drove to Ulla and started my hike to Mannen. The hike was relatively boring from this side of the island, staying on the mountain road almost all the way to the summit, and with very limited views.
