            We found this waterfall only because we also stumbled across a wonderful little ice cream/bakery/deli shop (Den Gronen) overlooking the water (Hardangerfjord) in Ulvik, Norway. The shop is run by a very friendly and interesting English couple who gave us lots of information on the local area (as well as great food). They had fully explored all the back roads in and around Ulvik, Norway and told us about a beautiful waterfall that we should stop and see.         
           Without their directions, we would have driven through this beautiful mountainous area and likely never noticed it. The waterfall was tucked into the mountainside with no place to stop and park a car so we just made a space by pulling off the road as far as we could. By the time we found the waterfall, it was so late in the day that no one else was around. So, we had the place to ourselves with the late afternoon light spilling over the mountainside and shining into this small grove with this beautiful waterfall. What a wonderful find and all thanks to the couple who run Den Gronen!
