Today we made 5 hours hike (8 km / ascent 350 m) to Preikestolen (the Pulpit Rock). It is a huge cliff in Ryfylke which towers into impressive 604 meters over the Lysefjord. The mountain plateau of about 25 x 25 meters was most probably shaped by the expansion of ice some 10 000 years ago. Water that froze in the crevices in the mountain broke loose large edged blocks of stone that the ice glacier brought along on its course. In the old days, the name of the plateau was Hyvlatånnå (planed tooth).
