Mom's 1953 Europe Road Trip: In Norway

From Mom's Europe trip diary, in the "PLACES VISITED" section:
September 6, Sunday – Between Kristiansand and Haukeligrend, Norway
After a breakfast of eggs, corn flakes, and a crab, started off on route Mr. Olson had picked out.  Went through spectacular country, perpendicular mountains, small waterfalls jutting out, streams developing into fjords, roads quite narrow, hair-raising road curves, tall trees.  Just too wonderful for words.  We stopped at this hotel * and after a meal of tea and a fried egg, went to bed.  Am certainly glad we came to Norway as this country is like our National Parks in Western part of U.S. 

* According to the "HOTELS STOPPED AT" section of the trip diary, my mother and her friends spent this night at the Haukeli Turistheim, Haukeligrend (now Haukeli), Norway.

My mother captioned the photo at right as "Gerrie stone-walking in Haukeligrend, Norway"

This is the 30th in a series of posts transcribing entries in my mother's 1953 Europe Trip journal.
