You wouldn't believe it, but we were in mid-april. Late snow had rendered the trees. A friend and I went there, and as we walked up to the top, we were surprised to see that many trees which already had their spring foliage were totally burnt by the frost. It's a saddening sight, but something that the trees can cope with once in a while. They won't get many leaves on that year, but they usually catch up the following year. The spruces here had yet not started their growth and were not harmed. The name of the place "Dances Crest" comes from the capercaillie (Tetrao Urogallus), a large grouse of 16 pounds which used to be common in the area, and which parades at this time of the year to seduce it's hens.
