|View from bridge|
While it was a tad breezy, the weather could not have been more beautiful as there was not a cloud in the sky. We had to walk through a small shopping square and across a main bridge before crossing into the backyard area of a local Viking Museum which allowed us to access the woods. Since there was not a single trail path (a pretty unheard of concept for the Adirondacks), the group divided and went on separate paths after having a group picnic lunch overlooking a farm.
After meeting back up at the local museum, the director invited us in to see the exhibits free of charge; apparently, the museum had a grand opening of a new interactive display the day before and he was quite excited that Americans were interested in seeing the ancient archives of the Frederikssund area. Although the museum signs were only in Danish, he explained to us that some of the various artifacts displayed were from 600BC. Laughing, he told us that we would never find these sorts of native artifacts in New York!
Although hiking in Denmark was nothing in comparison to the Adirondacks, it was a nice way to spend the afternoon and to see another area of Denmark.
