Gavlesjå Panorama

Gavlesjå Panorama 

Mr Svein was a priest in Heddal at the time of the Black Death (mid 1300s). He feared the disease would also claim him, so he moved up to Gavlesjåstulen.

Blåurd is located on the south-facing slope of Gavlesjå against Rognelifjell.
The name comes from the color of the stones in the scree which is the volcanic rock amphibolite which gives it color. Amphibolite is 600 million years old. When it crumbles, it produces a nutrient rich soil. The minister Svein knew this, and in the upper part of the rockslide, he created a garden. Vegetation and animal life in this garden is vulnerable, so too much tramping around is not advisable.
