Busman’s Holiday

(Post by Cindy Mom)

No, this trip is not all just about sightseeing and touring….  we also have had inspiring encounters with our professional peers who are doing similar work here in Norway, and there’s still more to come. It was pretty amazing for me to be able to meet with people who are working on biodiversity, outdoor recreation, trails, off road vehicle issues, and natural areas preservation here in Norway.  Although there are some huge differences in a few ways, we also have much in common and can learn a lot from each other.  I’ve also enjoyed all our hikes around the coastal areas of Sande and Stokke. While others on the team may be looking at the scenery and soaking up the sunshine, I’m also “working” as I check out the Norwegian trail blazes, interpretive signs, boardwalks, invasive plants, maps, vehicle barricades, and direction markers.

I’m curious, what does the tilde-squiggle-thingy on the top wood sign mean?

I don’t really know! I’ll have to investigate that and report back.
