Postcard Town -- Roros, Norway

I'm glad someone left the front light on so we could see this delightful town while it sleeps. via by Øystein E

I live in rural Ontario where we're surrounded by log buildings; all our barns are 150+ years old. It's so interesting to see these Norwegian log structures...same materials, but their own unique style! Beautiful...I imagine everyone sleeping under white duvets in those cozy houses!

They certainly know how to build a good sturdy roof to support the weight of that snow cover and very well insulated. I'm impressed.

I always liked the photos of Norway but I really fell in love with it during the Winter Olympics in, was it 1994? Anyway, lovely photo!

I keep scrolling back to this picture.

So charming.

Excellent photo.

Glad I don't have to shovel all that snow.

Wouldn't mind visiting for a day or two.

Would love to walk those streets in the quiet of the night peaking into the windows.

Easy to say that last two as I sit in 58 degree weather.

When I look at this wonderful photo, I can hear the snow crunch under my feet and the cold tickles the little hairs inside of my nose! I can't wait to reach the bottom of the little hill to enter the warm dwelling behind the yellow glow!. I love it!!!!
