If you come across a house like this, it means a hunter is living there. In this case a reindeer hunter who occasionally do some moose. 30.000 years ago the reindeer was the most important sustenance for our European forefathers. Today Norway have international responsibility for the wild european reindeer. Hunting regulates the population, so that it does not grow larger than the grazing resources permit, and this is a very old tradition for harvesting food.

This house is in the very small mountain village of Blæsterdalen, not far from Rondane National Park. If you look at the picture below, there is a small road, a private road and you have to pay a small amount to use it. You put the money in a box by the side of the road, and then just lift the barrier and go. It is based on trust like many things in Norway.
These days I have some wordpress problems. For reasons I don’t know I am not able to write comments on some blogs, but others I can. Sorry for this Chillbrook, Awindowtothewoods, Catrinblue, David Oakes, Geedebee, Cruzdelsur, Roberto Alborghetti, Edith Levy, Oneowner, Thewanderlustgene, Pierettej, Photosxavier, and I am sure many more. This have lasted for some time, I hope not forever.
