Automobiling to Alta

Sunday, Sept 22

Nothing much is open in Norway on Sundays, so today was the perfect day to take a long drive to get from Tromsø to our next destination.  We’re headed to Hammerfest, but have stopped partway there to spend 2 nights in Alta. Today we drove for about 6 hours to get here. The scenery was pretty similar to what we’ve been seeing in the Tromsø area.  At one point we did have to drive up over one mountain and through some snow. The road was clear, but you could see that it had been plowed at some point, as snow was piled up at the edges. There were lots of tunnels, Norway apparently has tons of them.  I think the longest one we went through today was 5.8km (3.6 miles).
