The views from up here are phenomenal!
Even the invincible Mayra has to take a rest at the top after her lunch!

Because Mayra and Craig had only one day left here in Sola together, they decided to do the other big hike on Thursday: Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock). This hike isn't as steep in places as Kjerag, but it is a lot longer. The average time to hike up there is about 2.5 hours. I dropped the two of them off to catch a ferry from Stavanger Sentrum to Tau and then they caught a bus to the base of Preikestolen and then hiked up. They were pretty tired when they got back. They both said their legs were like rubber....two big hikes back-to-back like that. Wow. The next day they both get to get stiff by sitting on airplanes for 10+ hours. :o) But, I can say that they did "do it all" in this region of Norway in the time they were here!
