Trip to Stjordal

Steve and Indy and I went on a sightseeing trip out near Stjordal today. First we made the obligatory stop at the Hell train station to get a picture of the sign "HELL – GODS EXPEDITION". Then to the Hegra fortress, which I've been to many times and is still so very awesome. Afterwards to view the largest collection of Bronze Age viking runes at Leirfall. Then to see the medieval DaVinci inspired fortress at Steinvikholmen. And finally to do some shopping and have lattes in downtown Stjordal.

A little bit rainy today, but a wonderful excursion nonetheless.
