In early summer it’s important to be prepared for sometimes winter-like conditions if heading out into the mountains. In the typical changeable nature of the weather on Lofoten, we had started the hike under a nice sunny blue sky. By the time we reached the summit, we had to sit on the leeward side of the large summit boulders to wait out the first of many snow flurries passing the mountains.
Even as one band of snow passed, the next would already be lined up on the horizon, approaching from Stamsund to the west. But as quickly as the snow would arrive, it would leave again and the sun would be shining brightly.
