1996-07-28 - Memurubu - Besseggen - Russvatnet
Up with the sunrise. The beginning was steep and the pulse went up to higher levels. Just before the amazing Besseggen we stopped for some Swedish bread, Danish sausage and Norwegian chocolate.

Now we were ready and steady for the climb. Sometimes you needed to use all your hands to come forward. I don't think I want to be here when it's raining. Finally we reached the top, we were all impressed. The view is lovely and we highly recommend it.

After some pictures we left Besseggen and walked against Russvatnet. Not so far away from Russvatnet we met our friends, father and sons and lots of reindeers. I don't think they had counted the meet us so quick.

We camped at the beach along Russvatnet. The beach wasn't crowded with people strangely enough. For the dinner we baked some bread in the stove.
