Gallery 4: from Rypefjord to the Bjørne Øerne

From Rypefjord to the Bjørne Øerne


Time for a good hike across C-Hofmann-Halvø, which was, by the way, named after a helicopter technician who was killed in an accident during an expedition in 1953. I still don’t know what the „C“ is for … (certainly not for „Cape“. Most likely, his first name was Christian, a common first name in Denmark). Sad history, beautiful scenery, with some very elegantly placed huge erratic boulders on hills that provide great views.

Øfjord is the mightiest of those natural channels that surround Milne Land, an occasionally breathtaking passage.
