Squeezed in between the glacier Adalsbreen and the barren rocks
of Norafjell is this lovely little green valley. Called the Kingdom
in the Sky by locals, the valley offers a splendid view towards
Vengetindene and Romsdalshorn across the Romsdal valley, Dønttind
to the south, and Trolltindene literally towering above.
|Mardalsfossen, the southern Mardalsfoss, seen from the northern Mardalsfoss. About a miles walk in easy terrain is all it takes to enjoy this magnificent waterfall. (map and description on this page)|
|A huge slab of ice almost blocked the inlet to this small pond in northern Mardalsfoss. Cold. Very cold. Robin dived in a couple of minutes later, and gave us a real life example of a silent scream.|

Yvonne and Robin feeding seagulls on the Valldal - Geiranger ferry. The fjord was alive with porpoises, and just on the corner between Storfjorden and the Geiranger fjord we saw two white-tail eagles. Another species to be observed is a sub-species of Homo sapiens called European Urban Environmentalists. It seems that part of our species have completely adopted habitats like Disneyland.
