Aurlandsfjellet National Tourist Route – a 47-kilometre-long stretch of road between Aurlandsvangen by the Aurlandsfjord and Lærdal by the Sognefjord in the county of Sogn og Fjordane in Fjord Norway. This photo was taken today – in the middle of the summer time in Norway (21/6-15).

Summer = dry road 😉
Norway usually is down to 10% snow cover by this time of the year. Now we have 25%. There is talk about bad floodings if we get both warm weather and rain.
So… What happens if you meet a wide truck and you can’t pass eachother?
There are meeting points along the road. This road is actually quite wide, compared to the old roads in the west coast region.
It really looks beautiful. Japan can compete with Norway in this aspect. See: http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e7550.html
In Germany we can also have bad floodings along the Rhine when the snow melts in the Alps and it rains at the same time. Happens every ten years and they call it “century flooding” each time. 🙂
Lübbe Onken I had no idea! The Japanese stretch is only a km long, but 20m tall sides is insane 🙂
I really want to see this Japanese snow wall one day. Luckily I’ve got family connections to Japan, so there’s always a reason to go there 🙂
