Signe Lidén & Espen Sommer Eide - Altitude and history
What does it mean to be present in a place, to sit still, listening to faraway cries of dogs and shouts of children carried by the wind. Your memories are not invited, yet still they come. The meeting point is the Nikel Ski Hut at 19.00. The hike will last approximately 3 hrs. Please bring good shoes.
