It’s 9:05 this morning and after an early start I am already deep in Maridalen at a car park.
It is still about -10 Celsius and yet I am taking off one of my two pairs of socks keeping my feet toasty warm. Why?
The car park looks like a skate rink but I am swapping the safety of my spiked shoes for what can only essentially be termed as slippers. Why?
I skate my way to the back of the van to find the two dogs and the reason for this madness.
After the dogs jump out I reach in and pick out my cross country skis and we are ready to go.
With two of my usual dogs away from my morning walk I certainly saw the glass as half-full and not half empty. It was time to carpe diem.
And good gosh did we have fun. Some very happy Langrenns hunder.
This afternoon I swapped the skis for the ice crampons and mountain boots, allowing me to conquer mount Grefsenkollen with a gang of crazy energetic doggies. Bounding up and down the hills shin deep in snow in the sunshine.
There are some pretty tired dogs out there this evening.
