23-Jul-2003 -- Coming from Sunndalsøra, I drove towards Oppdal before taking a smaller, partly unpaved, road over Nerskogen towards Grindal, then followed HW700 towards Å.
Since the first visitor told about problems finding the small private toll road towards N63E10, I stopped at the local grocery store to ask about directions, but without any luck. Following the map did however lead me to a small exit with a sign stating that GammelSætra and Holsjøen could be reached this way.
About a km along this road, I came to an unmanned toll booth: This works partly on the honor principle, in that they have a supply of envelopes, and directions for how you should put NOK 35 (about $7) in one of them, and print the car registration number on the outside, before depositing the envelope in a box.
There was an interesting problem here however, in that a pair of birds had decided that one of the two toll boxes was a nice nesting place: When I opened it to look for envelopes, I was met by 4 or 5 newly-hatched birds, all stretching their wide-open beaks towards me for some nice food.
Since I didn't have any handy supply of worms, I couldn't help them, but I did get a photo of the nest, before driving on and letting the parent birds get back to their chicks.
About halfway to Holsjøen and the end of a road I passed another self-service toll booth, this one wanted NOK 20 ($3). Another 5-10 minutes found me at final parking area, at which time the threatening rain finally started to come down in earnest.
The remaining distance to the point was 1.2 km, so I put on full orienteering gear (shoes, tights and blouse) so that I could easily handle both the rain and the always-wet marshlands that are so common in this part of Norway.
The area must be quite popular, I saw a number of nice cabins, and many good paths around the lake. Following the GPS map, I found one path that led almost to the confluence, I just had to ford a small river before locating it.
After returning to the car I drove back down to Å, and continued on to N63E9
