What’s better than setting up your tent after a long day of trekking? A lovely mountain view with a sliver of silvery moon. My husband and I are ready for summer tours, carrying our world on our backs through the beautiful forest and mountain terrain near Folldal, Norway. Inspired by the colour combination Dark Slate Grey + Aurora Light Turquoise.
