It is so wild the places trees can grow. I have seen trees grow on rocks in what would appear to be not nearly enough soil. They grow slowly but can survive through old age in conditions that can hardly be believed. Tenacity in the face of difficulty.

Lysevegen Road. Forsand, Norway The road is not small business. It has 32 sharp curves, a drop of 800 height metres on the last 8 kilometres (0.5 miles). The last 1.1 kilometer (0.7 miles) is driving through a steep 340 degree curved tunnel also with three switchbacks inside, called Lysetunnelen. This is the view 900 meters down, once you get on top. The highest point on the road is by Andersvatn lake, 950 metres above sea level. It is a long road, twisting and turning the whole way down.
