Fall colours of the fairy tale forest

Autumn has arrived in southern Norway and the “fairy tale forest” known as Krokskogen, just outside Oslo, has been ablaze in fall colours in recent weeks. Krokskogen, on the way to Hønefoss, was the setting for many fairy tales written by Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe back in the 1800s and also for a classic book by Bernhard Herre in the mid-1800s, En jegers erindringer (Memoirs of a hunter). These photos were taken after hiking from the parking lot at Kleivstua, at the top of a toll road that begins at Sundvollen.
