Fjords from the Bus from Voss to Gudvangen

The train arrive at the Voss station and we left the station and walked a few hundred feet (following the crowd) to the buses in the parking lot. There were several of them, all part of the "Norway in a Nutshell" tour. Didn't matter which one we got in. We stowed our suitcases and then got on the bus. It was about an hour bus ride. The road follwed a river in a valley between snow-capped mountains. Again, very scenic.

Stephane had the window seat (left side of the bus), so it was harder for me to get decent pictures. She took a few pictures and I took pictures looking right, left, and back), so this is more along the lines of documenting the trip.

Also, since a lot of it is hills, river, and road, I've identified some of the locations, but not all. Turns out the sign at the front of the bus saying the stop when someone requested a stop wasn't constant illumination but would flicker faster than the human eye can see, but not faster than the camera. However, I was able to reconstruct the names of the stops by checking online maps and routes. So I could get a sense of the area we were near, though I couldn't identify mountains and such.

I'm OK with that.
