Høgstkollen_Panorama

Høgstkollen_Panorama
BEST VIEWED LARGE.
7 photo's corrected using DxO Pro 8 and then stitched together using PSE11 to make this panoramic view looking out from the top of Høgstkollen in Hvarnes.
-----------
The walk up here only took me 35 minutes covering 1.8km (1 mile). The trail is well marked and a wide grassy 'road' for most of the way. It is however, very steep in places! Once you get near the top, it narrows to a typical forest path and flattens out. There is a Top box where you will find a log book that you can sign to say you made it ;-)
-----------
On the left in the trees is the lake called Holtetjønn. In the middle is the village of Hvarnes. Just to the right of there you can see the river Lågen which snakes it's way back and forth on it's way downstream to Larvik. In the middle of the river is the ecological farm called Andelsgård. It is characterized by the fact that there are many small plots where they grow various vegetables. There are also pigs, poultry and cattle on the farm. This kind of thing is still quite rare in Norway.
