Day 12 After having mastered the steep slopes of the gravel road, I was again cycling westward on Nordsjøvegen through an amazing landscape, designed as Magma Geopark.
Magma Geopark is an area of 2329 km² based on the largest layered intrusion and anorthosite area found in Europe. 1,500 million years ago, the region had a landscape of red-hot magma and high mountains. Through millions of years, glaciers helped to form the landscape we see in the area today. The main rock type is anorthosite, which is more common on the Moon than on the surface of Earth.
Ater many up and downs I reached a camping site in Egersund and enjoyed a salad with shrimps and a huge plate fish and chips in a café across the road.
