An historic event!

15th April Anno Domine 2014

The very first Pilgrimage in Balestrand… in modern time. We wanted to try out and test the path. Exciting! Would they become as enchanted as we are? After the first few steps I became at peace; they were with! They saw and took in the wondrous God’s nature… saw that here He had really been strewing out from His generous hand… 

Lage stistones
birds’ twittering
the frog pond
pine barren
spruce forest
pine needles
dry knolls and crags
the stone steps
the bobbling brooks
The old Road bits
the moss carpet
leaves from years before


In the end we all agreed on: It had been The good Pilgrimage!

We are filled with gratitude and admiration to Jørgen, Arthur, Erik, Ingvar and students from Sygna for the good work they have done to find the good trasee, clear and make even the path… we had a strong sensation of their hands’ work; and that this is a deed with brain and heart as well! We are looking foreword to guiding ‘all people’ on this Pilgrimage….

Warm evening sun….

Through the Pilgrimage path

An evenung walk on the pilgrimage path…. wondrous nature never seasing to surprise….. always giving new energy, again and again….. Our only duty is to come to meeting with it and walk….

Lage stiI went for a walk on the path
it was quiet around me
some places stony
moss carpet in-between
the path turn around a stump
careful… so you don’t stumble over a root..
The small miracle is happening:
The stiff knee was getting softer
The spine as well
it didn’t ache like before
I started walking

…and the birds could not stop singing...

Oh, you light in the forest…

‘Good and suitable weather’

Such read the parish clark as part of the prayer as an opening of every sunday service… I remember from my childhood church in Flå, Hallingdal. Now, these day we have had that suitable weather… for the ‘boys’ working with clearing the trace for the pilgrimage path. The picture above …. take it easy!.. Ingvar is not going to cut a single one of the honourable oak trees in the Målsnes forest. He will cut as little as possible. But it is important to clear the ground for the path to be nice and even, good for the foot to tread. … so, I’m afraid, some trees are in the way! But the forest have got plenty of the kind, and the property owners have given permission to cut where it is necessary. The pathway will be like an alley… Tall and slim fur trees in good mixture with lowgrowing birch or ore trees.. with some juniper bushes for extra scent. Scattered in between we meet hip roses with thorns… …Blackberries tastes good, but walking through those densly growing plants of that kind of an area is a challenge… the thorns hacks into your clothing… The way has to be cleared…..  Birds of many kind give concert to the Pilgrimage… mossy ground under the fur trees give good resound….
