There wasn't a lot of hills to climb, but one had got a name :)

But even if it wasn't either very steep or very long, was it good for small feet to get a rest at the end ;)

Rapet 534 moh

DSCN3715


Our municipality have started a program called "10 på Topp" - to get people to go hiking more. We can choose from 15 trips from high mountains to short walks. At each top there is a code for us to collect and when you have collected 7 tops (or 5 for kids under 12years) you get a mug :) Last night Erlend, Eirin and I went on our first top - Rapet 534 m above the sea.
