Here Comes the Sun

By Linda Tancs

Sandwiched between high mountains in Telemark, Norway, the town of Rjukan has been enveloped in darkness during the autumn and winter months.  But thanks to the ingenuity of local industrialists, the town is now bathed in light from new mirrors set up on the hillside to direct the sun’s rays to worshippers below.  Don’t worry, though, the newfound light won’t melt the area’s prized snow and ice.  Rjukan is still one of Europe’s best destinations for ice climbing.
