orienteering at midnight ...

with sunglasses on, well almost!
This year I travelled far north to Bodø and from there to Finnsnes where the Midnattsolgaloppen (MG) toke place. Every second year the MG will be organised by a club in northern Norway where the sun never sets during the days from mid June to end of July.
With starting times from 6 pm to 9 pm this is an unforgettable event for every orienteer. And what impresses me every time when starting in Norway is the friendly atmosphere on such events.
From the competition arena in Sørreisa I had to drive to Finnsnes where I stayed in a hotel. This photo is taken on my way back around half past nine.
Photo albums from stage 1&2 and from 3&4 are now ready on flickr.
