This weeks picture – Røysheim

Here are some pictures both old and new from Norway.

Røysheim, Bøverdalen, Lom, Oppland county 1892 ( Public domain mark (CC pdm))

Beautiful Røisheim was an old coachstation dating from 1858, and the protected buildings in the courtyard date from the 1700s.

Bøverdal is a valley in Lom municipality in the county of Oppland, Norway. The Bøvra river flows through the valley. For many centuries a route went from Lom village up through Bøverdal and down into Sogn.

Here is Røisheim today

    We drove through Boverdalen on our way to Lom. Unfortunately, it was raining and horrible weather. We were disappointed as we could tell that the scenery must be spectacular. It was interesting to read more about the history of the area.
