“You have to have been there to understand,” sings the local troubadour, Terje Nilsen, describing Mjelle in a song. In the summer, many excursions end at Mjelle, both weekends and weekdays. You don’t have to be a child to collect shells or build sand castles, or to enjoy a good ball game. Bring firewood and cooking equipment if you want to barbecue.
