Finally, after weeks of cold weather, it is snowing in Western Norway. A group of friends decided to ascend the mountain Høgenibba (1191 meters) in Hornindal. Normally this is an easy ascent, as the ski lifts at Hornindal skisenter will take you halfway to the summit. Unfortunately there was not enough snow for the slopes to open, so we walked up the entire mountain.

The day started out bright and sunny, and we had a lovely time ascending the mountain. Once we approached the summit, however, the clouds started coming in, and the light changed to the beautiful golden tones signalling incoming snow.

The wind picked up as we reached the summit, and the light was was waning quickly, so instead of enjoying our lunch up there, we just turned around and headed back down.
