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:
