Mountain puddle, next dream from next trip.
I love mountain in the autumn season. You all know it. I love to discovered new places, and you also know it. Sometimes I drive so far looking for new places, but sometimes the amazing places are so close. This one is only 100 kilometers from Bergen. Easy to reach driving the road E39. Long time ago in early winter I drove along the Modalen valley to the almost end. Almost, means to the end of asphalt road, and because it was winter time and a lot of snow, I stopped. And I always keep this place in my mind.
Like in many other valleys, also Modalen including technical road which was used for construction works. To build the dams around mountain lakes. This road start easy, at the end along few curves it leads to over 1000 meter above the sea level. Crazy, amazing drive. I love roads like this. Few parking places along, but the road still leads over and over. It is difficult to reach the last parking, but definitely worth. I wont to be there in spring time for to see whole the water from melting winter snows falling down through the valley. It should be amazing view. This time I visited the valley, it was dry. The dams detained the water in the lakes.
On the picture is the view from the first parking place on the road. Most of the people visiting this place stop here and they walk through few walking paths in every direction. Even in this place in more than 900 meters is beautiful, what you may see on the picture. The mountain puddle with view along the Modalen valley. Enjoy and have a nice weekend.

From my Destination Autumn trip, Mountain dream
That was fantastic morning in Lodalen. This is one of the most beautiful Norwegian valley. I am agree with this. This was my only second visit in this place, but not the last one. Lodalen is much quiet than the nearly placed Geiranger. Also the second beauty valley Oldendalen is still more quiet than the Geiranger.
Both the valleys gives the spectacular views and at the end both provide to the glacier. Many attractions for mountains lovers. The day starts with this mist show on morning, and it was only the beginning. This is why I love autumn. The moment I got out from the car was like Mountain Dream. I saw many phenomena here in Norway but the first time I was in the mists disappearing in the sun. This phenomena lasted just 10 minutes. After this time the valley was clear. Amazing.
It is not easy to edit mist on the picture. Not for me. This is the best effect of my work. I hope you will like it. I hope you will try imagine yourself in this mists, in one of the most beauty valley in Norway. Mountain dream for You.

Next weekend, next trip. Destination Autumn
I love all my weekend trips. I cannot live without it. When is rainy I am bored and angry. After the very bad summer time, we have so nice autumn time. Warm and almost always sunny. I am happy. The farthest destination was the Lodalen in Stryn. But I chose the different, not the shortest way. Only because I wanted to drive some part of the road number 5, which I did not drive before. Through the Voss, Gudvangen and Laerdal I reached the ferry between the Fodnes and Mannheller. Off course across some branch of Sognefjorden. Welcome again road number 5.
It was already early evening or late afternoon when I drove on the ferry. I think the autumn sunrise is much more beautiful on Fjord, but like you may see it on the picture below sunset is spectacular. This is the scenery to stand there and watch, and watch until the end of time. Of course this is only the picture which will not let you feel the mood. My destination autumn trip just started, and it started beautiful.
Many nice attraction waiting for me, and I hope to describe it everything for you. So, stay with me.
Before is Jostedalsbreen National Park (Jostedal Glacier National Park) and I will show you from four different places.

Today the second mountain lake.
Straight between, is the highest placed from the three lakes. Surrounded by not so high hills colored by early autumn. This is picture taken from the road small park place. Best place to do some picnic. Chicken from disposable grill taste so, so good in the place like this. Little bit cold, even in the sunny day. I do not know how high I am now, but with the stains of last year snow, I think it is high. The second mountain lake, Skjerjavatnet. Probably like I saw it on the map is biggest then the two other. Is so long, and on the picture is not visible how high it is. I was not ready to take walk. I never take walk in the terrain I do not know. This could be dangerous sometimes. Maybe next time, when I find where the walking path lead, I will try some walk. There is many sources in internet to find even the small walking path along Norway.

Water color – view from the dam
The same place like in yesterday`s post. And shot from other side of the dam. This is the first mountain lake on the technical road. It name is Askjellsdalsvatnet. Is big. On the picture is visible only some part of it. Because almost around whole lake is another part of this technical road, some day I will try to drive around. So, today only the picture from the dam. The most amazing in this place is the water color. Autumn on the hills around, almost clear blue sky, silence and the amazing color create mood not from this world. It all together let me feel quiet and calm. I am sure you all will love this feeling.
And it is still only beginning of this tour.
Like you see on the picture, and some previous posts, this is beautiful place but it is not famous. Not many people visiting it, and it gives possibility to be and to feel alone. On the whole road to the end and back I met three cars only.
Now I will drive between some last year snow parts to the next lake, and I will post it later.
…and the post from yesterday if you missed it:
