Archive Updates – Lofoten – Colorado – California

First off, hello and welcome to the new site! I’ve been pretty bad at blogging the last few months, and that was mostly because I knew I would be doing a big site update and so sort of lost interest in things for a bit. So, if I have any readers left, things should be more or less back to normal from now on.
I’m still not finished working on the site with a few pages still needing to be added and a few minor layout tweaks and the such. But I think everything looks much better overall, especially with the blog and website now combined as one.
Articles – This is a new section to bring better attention to some of the longer or informational articles I’ve written on the blog. As it had been, stuff would just get buried away as new posts piled on top, without an easy way of finding if I had any further info on a particular subject. Now, over the following months, I’ll be adding stuff to the articles section of the homepage to help make things a bit more orderly and intuitive.
The articles will be divided into a few sections:
Travels: These will mostly be random stories written about various travels. Mostly thoughts and musings, or stupid stuff I do.
Destinations: Here you’ll find location specific and informative articles about a particular place, ie ‘Hiking the Besseggen Ridge.’
Gear: I’ll talk about the gear I carry and use in this section. Hopefully I’ll eventually get around to adding reviews as well.
And in the future I’ll be adding an Events or Festivals section. I go to a lot of cool and obscure events around Europe that few other bloggers seem to write about or might be hard to find info in English about; I’ll be giving you details on the ‘when and where’
Prints – You can now see what prints I have available for sale without having to visit my Archive.
New Galleries – I hate to say it, but my last website had gotten pretty stale! My last update had been in 2010, so I’m more than a little overdue for new content. Although I’ve always posted links to the photos as I added them to my Archive, few of you ever headed over there, so a few new galleries are here now. With several more still to add.
3 new updates to my Archives.
Lofoten Islands – Spring 2013: Images from My April/May trip to the islands
Colorado: It has taken a while to get these edited and online. Images from my hiking and backpacking trip to Colorado last summer.
California: A few new photos Mostly from last summer in Yosemite: Tuolumne meadows and hiking Mt. Dana.

I am looking forward to seeing many new and fantastic photos and stories of your hikes through (amongst others) my adopted home country Norway. Your photos definitely make me try to take the best photos I can with my little camera.
Thanks Mara. Only a few more weeks until I’m back in Norway (Lofoten), hopefully the nice summer in the north thus far stays around for my arrival…
