Day 60: A Sign!

Langtjonnbua to Revlingsjoane

Distance: 45km

I sleep like a baby, a weird dream but I wake up completely regenerated and relaxed.

Well, the energy flies away quickly on the rock littered trail. Going is mostly hard, even brutal at times. It's a constant fight, keeping my head down all the time. Tripping hazard: extreme.
Completely exhausted and with my ankles glowing, I make it to my camping spot (there isn't anything suitable for a long time). After 14 hours of fighting.

But... It's not all bad today. Guess what: I spotted an E1 sign earlier today. This made me actually so happy! The first sign since, hmmm, the region Kautokeino up in Finnmark. Great to see I am on the right track.

To be honest: there are some lovely stretches and views as well. A lake with white sand beaches. As unexpected as you can imagine. Out there in the Norwegian mountains. It's windy at time so I only stop briefly.
Langeggtjonna is another lovely lake I'm passing today. The trail leads along a narrow ridge with water on both sides. Unique as well.
Then there is the part after Rovollen. A completely straight, 6km trail leading up a ridge. The interesting landscape makes it feel like I'm walking on a different planet.
Last but not least, my camping spot is top notch once more with amazing views. That alone is worth the effort. 

Yes, I made good progress. However, I think it was a bit too much today. Especially because of the difficult terrain. And tomorrow, looking at the landscape ahead, won't be much different. Let's worry about that tomorrow.

Now it's time to enjoy my last night in Norway. Sweden here l come! 

What a crappy start into my hiking day
