My Spontaneous Trip to Dalsnuten

It’s around 9 a.m. when my alarm rang. I could have just slept back again but no my mind won’t allow me too. So I got up, took a shower and ate breakfast. I was thinking of great ways to utilize my day off, wisely. The first thing that went into my mind is the gym. Second is window shopping. Third is do the laundry and last is hiking. I chose the latter even though I knew that no one is available to go with me and that I’ve never been to that place before. I’m a bit concerned when it comes to new places, specially mountains and forests because sometimes (ahem!) I got a wrong sense of direction (Even though there’s a map.). However, I want to be adventurous this time and set aside my worries. So I packed my bag. I packed light because the hike is only 2 hours total so I won’t be needing a bunch of stuff with me.

I took the bus to Dale and got off the stop Gramstad and walked up to the site. It took me around 15-20 minutes to get to the post. It’s impossible to get lost here because there are signs.

And so I followed the sign to Dalsnuten.
