My story - Odin

Published: October 15, 2017

A walk through a forest is a peaceful yet exciting thing to behold. You never know what you’ll encounter, even on a familiar path, and the forest always surprises you with what it is capable of. Beauty is found with the sounds and colors of leaves fluttering while sunshine sneaks through the branches. Breathtaking is spotting a snapping turtle laying its eggs right on the path in front of you, giving a softer touch to an otherwise fierce adversary (to be explained later).

Ukens oppskrift - Blomkålsuppe

Don’t get me wrong… we will never replace tomatsuppe at Skogfjorden but Blomkålsuppe is a wonderful alternative, perfect for the cooler fall weather and super (souper!!) hearty.

Skogfjorden has infiltrated my life in the smallest of ways on a daily basis, but it has also given me an orientation with which to explore.
