As summer eases into autumn in Norway, the mountains continue to beckon thousands of outdoors enthusiasts. The national trekking association DNT has reported a record number of visitors to its rustic cabins around the country. It was quiet over the vast mountain plateau of Norefjell this past weekend, though, with the sounds of silence filling crisp mountain air. Hover your mouse over the photos for caption information.
