Forest Goat Sanctuary

At the end of a rough gravel road, in Valdres, Norway —  is a goat sanctuary. There are high stretched pines, tall grass and massive rocks in the area. No one roams these lands but the occasional moose and nervous roe deer. At 735 meters above sea level, the winters are cold and long, although dry. The thirty goats roam here and graze excitingly on the aggressive deciduous trees that spread with the wind and sprout quickly in the thin soil layer of the mountain woodlands. There are the caretakers and the 30 goats, living together, moving from pasture to pasture in the summer, roaming the huge hall in the winter. The roof of the hall is a solid construction, designed to carry heavy snow loads.
