Four major fjords
Published on September 15, 2014 16:46
The formation of fjords is due to the erosion of valleys by glaciers. When glaciers slide down from high mountains, they not only flow into the valleys, but also erode the mountain walls and become valleys. Deep fjords are formed when coastal valleys are flooded with seawater. Canyons are more common in frigid regions. 80% of the fjords in the world are in Europe. The fjords in Europe are mainly in northern Europe, while the fjords in northern Europe are mainly in Norway. Norway has a long and winding coastline. The west coast of Norway is eroded by glaciers to form a canyon, and then poured back into a fjord by the Atlantic Ocean. Norway is famous for its numerous fjords, known as "fjord country". Fjord is the most representative landscape in Norway, from the northern warrenger fjord to the southern Oslo Fjord, one by one, countless tortuous fjords and glacial relics constitute a magnificent fjord scenery. The four most famous fjords in Norway are: the most gentle hadanwer Fjord, the longest and deepest Songen fjord in the world, the most beautiful and mysterious galenwell Fjord, and the nearest Luther fjord to the sea.
Our fjord itinerary is: Oslo Gallo midar Fromm Oran fjord ladar tunnel Sonne fjord northern Fjord brisda glacier hellersholt galenwell fjord eagle's road and ELF's road.
After leaving Akershus, I entered the fjord area, with beautiful scenery along the way. The bus flies towards Gallo town. On the way, it passes flo town. There is a statue of a bear at the entrance and exit of the town, including a statue of a mountain elf. The guide said that this is "Uncle Sam". Because there are bears around the town, it is also called "Bear Town". At noon in the highway side of the fast food restaurant with a three course western food, the main course is very simple, a fish steak, two boiled potatoes, a few pieces of carrots and broccoli. After the meal, I went on, and suddenly I heard the guide say "look, that's a wooden church.". When we look out, there is a strange building not far from the roadside. All the houses are made of wood. Each floor has a steep eaves and a spire. It looks like an ancient oriental temple. This is the ancient wooden church. Due to abundant forest resources, many churches in northern Europe were built of wood. At that time, there were more than 1000 such Churches in northern Europe. These churches, known as "wooden churches", are unique church buildings in northern Europe. Most of them were built between 1130 and 1350. At present, Norway has the largest number of wooden churches. There are about five wooden churches in the area of pine fjord alone.
We arrived at Gallo railway station at more than 3 p.m., where we will take the Oslo Bergen train to midar. Gallo is located in the valley, 794 meters above sea level. The town has only a commercial street of two or three hundred meters, but it is a famous ski resort. As we had a lot of spare time, we wandered around the station. Gallo railway station is very small, with only two tracks to and from. Opposite the station, there are two buildings with white walls and red roofs, which were originally barracks and hospitals in Norway during the German Nazi invasion. There is a small street under the station, on which there are two rows of buildings with wooden walls and tile roofs. Looking at the hillsides on both sides, we can see that there are light green paths with grass between the dense woods, and some have street lamps. Those paths are ski paths in winter. The station is an eye-catching bright yellow wooden house on the second floor. The waiting room is small but clean. At the station, there are many lovely children with schoolbags waiting for the bus. When they see us holding up our cameras, they immediately show a sweet smile.
At 16 o'clock, the train came. The bright red carriage was very beautiful. There were four seats in the carriage, two seats on each side, very comfortable. The train is running on the mountain road with an altitude of more than 800 meters, and constantly climbing up. The scenery outside the window has changed from green to white ice and snow, and then to white snow mountain with green moss and yellow sandstone. Half an hour later, the train arrived at fenser station, the highest railway station in Norway. By this time, the window was covered with snow and ice. At 1222 meters above sea level, fenser has no plants or residents, but only rocks, sand and ice. Occasionally, I saw a few wooden houses, which were also temporary residence for station staff. The bus stops here for 15 minutes for passengers to get off and take photos freely. We got off the train and looked forward, only to see the continuous snow capped mountains and the white clouds in the sky. The glacier under the snow mountain is as flat as a horse, open and flat. In the summer sun, it has partially melted. But the ice sheet on the roadside is still strong and solid, a little bit as you are exposed to the sun and rain. What a beautiful snow scene, what a pure and quiet world, people indulge in it and don't want to extricate themselves.
