Exciting news! So some of you may have seen that Odin and I have been selected as one of three group hike leaders in Norway for @hikingdogsofinsta.
Well our first hike is coming up in February and we're looking forward to making some new friends.
Details are as follows:
When: Sat 16th Feb, 2pm
Where: Meeting in the park at Trolldalen in Hellerud, Oslo
We'll be walking in Østmarka, taking the small trails to avoid the ski tracks (lysløypa), doing a loop around Solbergvann and returning to Trolldalen on a different trail.
Length and difficulty: Moderate difficulty, steep in parts, 5km round trip. Around 2 hours.
Getting there: Trolldalen is easy to get to by car or public transport. Parking is allowed on parts of Stordamveien next to the park, but not further down towards the main road. The closest bus stop is Postkassene on bus line 69.
Other info: Gaiters (gamarsjer) or shoe spikes might be necessary depending on the snow conditions.
There's a limit of 10 dogs per hike to keep things manageable so it's first in best dressed. Send me a DM if you want to join us! If you want to know what to expect from this hike in terms of scenery, have a look through my recent photos. With the exception of the mountain backdrop in Ustaoset, they're all from the area around where I've planned this hike. 📷: During yesterday's hike, I FINALLY managed to get an action shot where Odin doesn't look like a derp! So 1 good one and about 50 derpy ones. Anyone want to see the bloopers?
