Love the view and the historical significance. Thinking back to how it must've felt for the Norwegian forces fighting off the Germans during WWII gives a special eerie feeling to the place.

The drive through this area is amazing. I found myself cruising along through with not another car to be seen. On the northern side I stopped on the side of the road (in August) and found the bushy area to be covered with blue berries!
