Jim and Elsie’s 1978 Tour – Day 68

Wednesday, 7 June 1978

Cloudy, cool

Later breakfast this morning, leaving at 10.30. Bus to lake, boat for 20 mins. Blue water reflections in lake, bus, 15 minutes to foot of Briksdal glacier. Take gig and horse for 20 minutes up steep path past waterfall and zig path to top. 15 min walk to edge of glaciers. Deep blues in the ice as it melts into the large pool. Very steep section of glacier comes down the mountainside between the valley. Looks like frothy shaving cream coming down. Lunch at the Briksdal Restaurant (35 kr). Had a sleep in the afternoon. Big variety again in the tea selection.
