Gudvangen, Norway by Espen Haagensen - A starry AND windy night and the Grindaflet hut in the Voss mountains. Quite a bit of snow to dig in order to get into the hut. The Grindaflet hut is a self service hut owned by the Norwegian Trekking Association and is open for everybody.
I spent a few days in Banff National Park in Alberta, Canada, in September 2009 - WOW- what a place! Incredible scenery in all directions, great short and long hikes, surprisingly few people and excellent weather. This is a must see if you have a chance.
