The Skålia Farm - June 2015
Most of the husmenn lived on the mountains behind the main farm. The Skålia farm sits in a small meadow in the mountains above the farm in this picture.
Until the 1980s, there was no road from the valley to the mountain top; it was an arduous climb on foot or with horses to reach these remote farms. Thankfully, a timber road was built that winds 5-6 miles up the mountain and allows access to the farms above. Ths Skålia farm is now used a mountain cabin. A steep driveway climbs up the mountain from the timber road. Skålia lies about 2 1/2 miles from the end of the timber road, where the path to the Enderud farm begins.
