Norway - The Way to the North

The long, long path across the moor into the forest - who beat it? The man, the human, the first, who was here. For him, no path was available. Later, one or another animal followed the weak track over marshes and bogs and made it more distinct, and again later this or that Lapp gradually sniffed along the path, and used it when wandering from mountain to mountain, to look after his reindeer. Thus, the path through the vast commons was formed, which no one owned, through the abandoned land.
