I'm dreaming of a trip to this specific spot in Norway. The reason being, that little farm pictured in the photographs was where my grandfather was born. My cousin visited the farm in the 90's, and took this photograph:
Part of the farm house dates to the 1600's, though my family didn't own it back that far. The farm is no longer occupied.
I have this photograph of the farm passed down from my grandfather.
His entire extended family, as I understand it, all emigrated to Minnesota together. Ultimately quite a few of them ended up homesteading in Montana at the end of the 19th century.
I dream about a trip there, to hike that old road to the farm, a path my ancestors would have walked many times.
