"When you escape from something, you don't abscond into nothing -- you escape from one place to another. The excitement is in the instant of deliverance itself, because that, not the final destination, is the only moment of being free. It's the moment of feeling most alive and most oneself, unburdened by the expectations on either side." -- Elisabeth Eaves
I love this photo; it's a combination of amazing exhilaration and sheer terror at the same time! Very cool!
Trolltunga is another spectacular example of the geological oddities that dot the Norwegian landscape. The fittingly named 'Troll's Tongue' sticks out of a vertical mountain side above a 350m drop. It offers a magnificent view of Skjeggedal near town of Odda.The location is far less know than some other spectacular geological oddities in Norway, and therefore, much less crowded, however still quite accessible. You can take a funicular up part of the way, though it isn't always functioning. It is roughly a 3-4 hour hike to the 'trolls tongue'.
Trolltunga, Norway. Trolltunga is a piece of rock that hangs out of the mountain about 2,000 feet up in the air. The Troll’s Tongue (translation in English) is available to hikers from mid-June to about mid-September---WOW
