Mølen

Mølen er et av de mest spennende naturområdene i Vestfold. Det er "endestasjonen" for raet som går gjennom store deler av fylket vårt, og her har store steinmasser blitt avsatt mens isen trakk seg tilbake etter siste istid. Det er storslått natur, og alt er selvfølgelig fredet.

Ikke nok med at man her kan finne store mengder med rullestein, våre forfedre har også brukt stedet som gravplass. Rundt 230 små og store hauger finner du her. Den største ca 35 meter i diameter, de minste såpass små at de nok aldri har vært en funksjonell grav. Man lurer på om de kan være reist til minne om folk som har mistet livet ute. I et par av haugene har de funnet rester av forbrent tre. De regner med at det har blitt foretatt en kremering der, før de har lagt steiner rundt. Den ene er datert til et sted mellom 25 og 250 år etter Kristus. Noen av haugene regnes som eldre, andre som yngre. Alt i alt kan feltet ha vært i bruk i omtrent 1000 år.

I tillegg til haugene er det en god del planter her. Jeg var litt for tidlig ute til å få de beste bildene av disse, så dere får nøye dere med et og annet tre og busk. Mange av plantene er sjeldne ellers, de trives nemlig godt i den karrige jorda her ute.


Uansett, ta gjerne turen ut til Mølen. Det er spennende å gå der, men husk gode sko. Pass også på at dere lar steiner ligge der de hører hjemme, det er totalforbud mot å fjerne stein herfra, det er til og med forbudt å flytte på dem.

  1. Good morning how are you?

    My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

    I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because trough them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately it’s impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

    For all this I would ask you one small favor:
    Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Norway? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Norway in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

    Emilio Fernandez Esteban
    Calle Valencia, 39
    28903 Getafe (Madrid)
    Spain

    If you wish, you can visit my blog www.cartasenmibuzon.blogspot.com where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

    Finally I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

    Yours Sincerely

    Emilio Fernandez
