Autumn

It is definitely autumn, and we enjoy it to the fullest! A wonderful day in the greenest of woods, hiking my favorite path. On the 15th, we were once again allowed to make a fire in the woods, and this was thoroughly celebrated today. Once again we found mushrooms, and "a lot" doesn't cover the quantities we brought home. I don't know what to do with it all! Guess we'll have a lot of mushroom soup this winter.

My father used to take me to these places when I was a child, and I love being here with my own children. I think these moss covered, green woods are beautiful. The path goes from a place called Bysetermosan, and was built around 1750 by a Madam Cudrio, who owned most of the woods east of Oslo. She was one of the wealthiest people in the area at the time. On the photo to the left, you can see the ancient stone wall created to make a functional riding path. This was actually an important road for transporting goods some hundred years ago. I really like walking on it, both for its beauty and for its history.

Det var andre kvaliteter på veiene den gang, men absolutt vakrere enn nå! Je må si je synes sånne skoger er flotte, litt eventyr-aktige :) Stekt kantarell er kjempegodt, og det er koselig å bringe kunnskapen og plukke-stedene videre til sine barn.

Det er vakkert, rett og slett. Må slå opp kartboka. Vi har Østmarka rett utenfor døra.
