Mine entrance

Sunday, July 17th 2016

I went for another hike in the mountains outside Longyearbyen. This time, the target was Nordenskiöldfjellet, a little bit higher than Trollsteinen, and a little bit more challenging. No slushy glacier to cross, but a steeper ascent and a greater distance to cover. We started out at the top of the valley above Longyearbyen, at the entrance to an old mine, long since abandoned and now full of snow and ice.
