(visited by John Dag Hutchison)

19-Aug-2012 -- I had not read the report of the first visitor, but while passing Nordfjordeid realized it was not too far off my road.

From Bjørkedalen I took a gravelled and partly overgrown road up in the hills. Half way up there was an unmanned point for paying a road toll. You put your money in a supplied envelope and keep a copy. I continued up to a point where the confluence point was only about 700 m to the left of the road. I set off only to be met by a small river which was too deep and too rapid for a safe crossing. I walked upwards along the stream and still found it too risky. The days before, and especially the night before, had been very rainy. I gave up 462 meters from the confluence point.

On my way back to the car I came across a fellow in the grass. I apparently woke him up. He was very annoyed with all these tourists and others who were sneaking around in the area. It was none of my business to go to the other side of the river! It took some time to explain why I was there. He then told me that later this month, when the deer hunting would start, they usually crossed further down the river, just as I later read that the first visitor had done. By then it was too late to have a go at it, the wife was waiting (patiently) in the car and we had to get back to Oslo that night, a drive of around 500 kilometers. Worth trying some other time.
