At the top of the mountain

The view from the top was really worth the climb - we could see for miles and miles.

We stopped my this small hut at the top which had been used as a monitoring station - as everything older than 1949 is classed a cultural heritage and protected we were told not to take anything. The hut was locked but I suspected that there was a Starbucks inside that Inge didn't want to tell us about.
We also saw some Arctic Grouse at the top - they were not scared of us even though Maud the dog was very interested in them...

On the way down we saw some goose hunters going up the plateaux for an evening of hunting.
They took this picture of us near the bottom the first climb.
