Food for hiking

Hiking is popular in our family, especially when we are at our cabin. We have a favorite mountian we love to climb, Høvikfjellet, and food never tastes better than when you have reached the top and sit sheltered for the wind, on top of the world, with a view which is almost impossible to describe in words. At Whitsun our lunch consisted of bread, eggs and "Norwegian kaviar", coffee, water, and of course chocolate. Chocolate is always allowed when you hike. (May be that's why I love hiking so much.......)

I've been doing hard boiled eggs lately also, so good.

Your reward at the top is not only a delicious meal but a breathtaking view as well.

see you there! said...

A picnic on top of world! I think it would be worth it and I'm not a hiker by nature.

You carry an egg-slicer to the top of the world? Egads, you must really be fit! It made me laugh to see it.

Being stuck in a wheelchair, I can't tell you how much I enjoy visiting you part of the world through you Blogs. Thanks for the experience I enjoyed the hike.

Lunch is so satisfying when hiking isn't it? I'm glad chocolate goes along in the back pack.

That view is spectacular! And chocolate is always a welcome way to celebrate a hike!
