Up the Mountain

Today we climbed the mountain above Longyearbyen, next to the glacier and up to the very top. We wanted to see the view of the fjord and mountains beyond..... even though it was cloudy we hoped for the best.

we went with Inga our guide who took her dog called Maud (a boy), it was a Greenland dog, she also took some chocolate and coffee and large revolver in case of Polar Bears

We passed the old coal mine entrance which was full of ice from the permafrost

and headed up into the hills - there are no trees or bushes here only rock, and stones, and boulders, and mud and ice. There are also big mountains over 1000 meters tall.
