  • It's a strange feeling to be close to the arctic circle and totally cut off from all transportation routes.

    An avalanche closed the road to and from my town and an eerie feeling of isolation and dread creeps in.

    The fjord is short and narrow and you're reminded how insignificant and small you really are.

    I'm just glad my car wasn't there when the avalanche came flying down the mountain.
