Backpacking the Besseggen Ridge
I spent a couple of weeks in Norway this summer, road tripping and camping through the south. Our friends Joel and Anniken Byberg were amazing guides for half of it, and the second half we wandered, stopping at whatever gorgeous fjiord or mountain we liked, camping our way through Jotunheimen National Park. We took a couple of days to hike the Besseggen Ridge, and it was hands down my favorite part of the trip. About 4 miles in we found ourselves in the middle of a big herd of reindeer. Whoa. That was an incredible experience, being surrounded by these insanely beautiful, powerful, and peaceful creatures. I am always super inspired by nature, so I wanted to share a little bit from that hike. All these shots were taken on my phone, I prefer to go ultra light when backpacking. The two photos of me in here were taken by Ben.
