Trip to Evenstad
We drove to Evenstad today, where Hedemark University has their wildlife and fisheries department. We needed to use the laundry facilities, and found the unisex bathroom signs amusing. Conlon, Peter and Kiwi went hiking off of the Birkebeiner Road (the road over the pass between Evenstad and Lillihammer). The temperature there was much chillier, making the planned quick swim unappealing. Five loads of laundry later we returned to Elverum and went swimming in Lake Søbakken. I was invited into the lake by an elderly woman who told me it was not kald but varmt! For those swimmers out there this Lake is similiar in size to Lake Padden and swimmable without a wetsuit. Come November it will be frozen solid.
