Walk up to the Storseter waterfall, and walk under the waterfall

Once we got off the ferry we found the path to the Storseter Waterfall.  It was a 35 minute walk up to the top.  It wasn't that warm, but by the time we got to the top we were all hot!
About 2/3rds of the way up there was a natural spring, and the water was fantastic to drink, so cool and  refreshing and a perfect place for a quick stop!

Along the  way we saw some sheep, hard to catch for the Norwegian wool.
At the bottom of the walk were a bunch of hand carved Norwegian Nordic Sticks that you could borrow for the steep walk!  Gee, they were great!
The top of the waterfall was a great place for a picnic.  A family had brought along a mini BBQ to have their dinner.
Fantastic views at the top of the glaciers in the Jostedalsbreen National Park.

Not far from the top of the waterfall was a path to walk down to get a good view of the falls.
There was a path to follow to walk underneath the waterfall.
Nicole stood nearby and took photos of Phil and the boys having fun under the waterfall.

Heading back to the bottom of the path were some more sheep...these ones hard to catch too.  Look like Nicole will need to go to a wool shop instead.
Back at the base of the waterfall we stopped at the restaurant for a simple dinner, we finished a little after 9 pm.  The long days give plenty of time for touring!
Then it was (we thought) a 1 hour drive to our hotel for the evening.
