Photographer's Note

Hello!

In this photo you see a woman heading for the top of the Gausta mountain (1883m) at the edge of the Hardangervidda national park in Norway.
The place has a very interesting history- At the summit you will find a few structures and a big concrete slab built by NATO and the Norwegian army during the cold war. God knows how many tunnels and rooms you might find under this slab. They also constructed an elevator system inside the mountain to make the summit available for the soldiers during all seasons. Nowadays this elevator is used to transport personnel and food for the coffee shop (!) at the top of the mountain.

All in all an amazing place to visit. Both for historic reasons and for the more than gorgeous scenery of nature at it's best. You can read more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaustatoppen
