Crack Hammer by Alex37 Crack Hammer by Alex37
Emma and I fondly refer to this peak as Crack Hammer, but it's real name is Krakhammartinden (tinden meaning peak). Looking at a map of Lofoten it is evident that there are numerous sheer rock faces and unhikable peaks and Krakhammertinden is no exception! We set up our camp directly beneath the rock face so were had the peak towering over us for quite some time. Its geology reminded me strongly of images I have seen of the Torres Del Paine in Patagonia, but this peak is admittedly a bit smaller! The light coming through the cloud toward sunset was colourful and dramatic, close to my favourite lighting conditions and a very exciting experience given the location. It funny to think that were it not for our tired legs we would have been camped far from here and I would have missed the opportunity.

This is a reminder that the world is a beautiful place and we must all regard it with wonder and do what we can to preserve it so that others may enjoy it's timeless beauty. My hope next year is to travel to Utah to see Monument Valley and some other National Parks in that region of the country. These are all inspiring, and I just printed some pictures today at about 12 x 18 format because I wanted to crop them down to 12 x 12 for a scrapbook, and now I don't have the heart to touch them att all because they are so beautiful. Thank you for sharing this with us.
