My World Tuesday




Jutulhogget is a 2.4 kilometers long canyon and 150-500 meters wide. At its deepest it is 240 meters from top to bottom, created by the rupture of the dam of a proglacial lake approximately 10000 years ago. It is the largest canyon in Northern Europe. The legends tell that a Jutul ( a mountain giant/Troll) clove the mountain with an axe.
