THE LAKE VANGSMJØSA

The pearl of Vang is Vangsmjøsa. Beautiful, yet capricious where it glimmers and twinkles in sunshine and calm. When the western wind chastens it, it sputters white with foam and the water drives high up the mountain hills. Legend says that Vangsmjøsa is very deep. A man wanted to find out exactly how deep it was. He took all the ropes he could find and tied them all together. For a sinker he used a pot of tin and a cured ham.
