Nils went to Finse on 3rd May to attend a Winter School for his PHd studies. After a 7 1/2 hour train journey, he arrived at the highest point on the Oslo-Bergen railway....1222m above sea level!
The Hotel at the station! Yes that is a railway carriage connecting the two buildings!
Nils and his Professor Vladimir out skiing! This was nice weather! On a couple of other days there was blizzard conditions!
As the conditions are so harsh, the few trees that are around are like Bonzai! Here is an example of a Pussy Willow! (We have a couple of mature ones in our garden)
Alcohol is purely medicinal, of course! ;-)
Not quite a full moon over Finse on 8th May! (full moon 9th May)
Nils thoroughly enjoyed his time there and having the opportunity to ski as well as learn!
