This country is famous for its fjords. With one of the longest coastlines in the world, it has over 50,000 islands off the coast! It is also the third highest oil exporter in the world, after Saudi Arabia and Russia.

Note: this one may need to be done early in the day before anyone else arrives. Find a large park (it's well marked) on the lake whose name has 5 sets of double letters. Start at the public boat launch. Proceed south along the trail past about 5 picnic benches, crossing a wooden bridge along the shore. When you get near the red house, head uphill about 15 paces from the long bench, and follow the path that goes off to the right. Head towards the boardwalk and cross over. Pass two picnic tables on one side and a playground on the other. Between picnic tables 3 &4, go left up into the volleyball court. Turn left and follow the stone wall south (on the western side). About 16 feet before the largest boulder in the wall (and the largest tree) is a tree bigger than any of its neighbors rooted under the wall. It is within 30 feet of the corner of the volleyball pit. At the roots on the far side is your prize. To get back: keep following the path in the direction you were going, past the red bath house, through the parking lot and up onto the dirt road, to the right, back to the parking lot. (Total time from parking: 30 minutes)
