1999-07-26 - Memurubudalen - Surtningssui - Memurubu
Early in the morning we put the boots on and begin our walk to the top. The weather appeared to be just as lovely as we dreamt of. Blue sky with sunshine. We stopped nearby the path cross and took the backpacks off. From here we first had to walk in a very stony hill but after we came up that hill it was much easier. Half an hour from the top we pass an old little stone cottage filled with ice and snow.

Our glacier friends from Krossbu told us that we could sleep in the cottage without sleeping bags because it was renovated. Was it a joke? When we stepped up the peak Surtningssui we looked out over the landscape and saw one of the most marvelous sights. We also visited the other peaks.

Back at the path cross we prepare some food in the stove. After that we are all a bit tired so we had to lay down and enjoy the sunny weather and to improve our tan. We choose another way back to Memurubu this time, the steep and extremely stony east way. In the evening we had a coke in the bar and talked to our Norwegian fans, Mette and Marit.
