Had to stop and say hello when I met these friendly fellows some weeks back, on my way home from Rondane national park. There are not many donkeys in Norway, and horses are the main business for Hjerkinn Fjellstue. This is said to be the oldest family business in Norway, now run by the 13th generation, and they offer horse riding in the mountains. There are more photos of horses in my photo gallery.
Just around the corner is this church, Eysteinkirka, and as you can see from the sheep this is not city life, but actually high up in the mountains. The church was built in 1969, on the same place as a church built in 1100. The church is used by pilgrims, as this is by the pilgrim route from Oslo to Nidarosdomen cathedral in Trondheim.
Going home that day I also passed this extraordinary church, Horg church in Lundamo. Having a closer look I found out the incredible colour was due to restoration. There are more photos of norwegian churches in my photo gallery.
