The Driva Expedition Journal - The lower valleys

Monday, 2 August 2010

Slow to wake up and get moving, my body felt tired. We arrived at a steep rapid, the volume of the river had increased. Mostly read and run rapids with waterfall after waterfall on either side of us. The flow of the river kept us moving steadily and faster than we expected. We passed more fishermen and some well kept river frontage properties.

We found a great campsite at Furu camping and stayed in a hut. Chatted to an experienced fisherman who was excited to hear about our expedition.  He told us he had left his life in Olso and moved to the Driva to fish. The low mist hung around all day making it hard to shoot photos.

We enjoyed a dinner of Penne with canned mackerel, beans and fried onions.
