    Carpets of lichen and moss in Jotunheimen

    Favorite thing: Jotunheimen doesn't have any trees, but its mountain slopes are far from bare. Wherever possible, tiny plants, mainly mosses and lichen, push their way up to form whole carpets which in the end give colour to the whole scenery. And not just one colour, a multitude of them, from brown, through various shades of green, to yellow and white. Not a trace of disharmony in their co-existence: Mother Nature has mixed her paints with such perfection no artist could have done it better.

    N.B.: Because of my poor English, I'll add some info from Norvegian Website about animal life, as we saw many animals we even didn't know the names before:
    "Besides the wealth of fish in the sea, the rivers and the lakes, it is nonetheless the abundance of animal life that has made life in Norway possible through the ages. Moose, elk, and deer wandering in the woods have been easy prey for hunters, particularly in deep snow. Though the hare is a smaller animal, it too was valuable food. Reindeer were easy to spot on the open plateau's. Several herds of musk oxen also wander in the mountains. (They were introduced from Greenland.) Bear, wolf, lynx and wolverine are also part of this fauna but are protected by law. In contrast to the fox, which is hunted everywhere. There are beavers and otter in some of the watercourses, while salmon, trout, powan, char, eel, pike, perch, white fish, carp and herring are good eating fish found in the rivers and lakes."
