2017 March - Norway

This was my second trip to see the magnificent Must Ox of Dovrefjell, Norway. This time in the cold month of March when the snow is receding but still very cold with temperatures of -20c and howling winds to bring the temperature down even further.  
The trip was not particularly successful as the winter was milder and therefore the muskox where a lot higher in the mountains which made them more difficult to reach. The deep snow proved tough going and our previous distances of 10 kilometres on the mountain where not achievable so the best we managed was to find a solitary muskox some 2 or 3 kilometres up the slopes. 
I felt like I was getting old and trekking distances seemed impossible especially as a shoulder injury I sustained last year was making it difficult to carry the camera bag.
