These young reindeer are "play fighting,"
just practicing for the real thing.
We were hiking in a place called Alkehornet,
a meadow at the base of a high cliff
(alke = cliff in Norwegian), where thousands
of Arctic birds were nesting. In the meadow was
a herd of about 25 reindeer—that
(uncharacteristically) came very close to us.
The whole experience was pretty
special, to say the least!
