Spring snow flurries over Stamsund

One of the cool things about the north is how quickly the weather comes and goes.  One April morning after a night of snow I woke up to nice sunny weather.  First thought of mine was to head up Steinetind (the mountain in the center of the first pic) and take in the view.  Around the half way point, while I was climbing a smaller middle peak the winds picked up as some clouds blew over and brought about 20 minutes of snow.  I huddled down among some rocks and waited for it to pass.  And soon enough, as quickly as it arrived, it was over and I was looking at nice blue skies again and a gently breeze.  now back on my way up the mountain…
