Bike & Swim
Summer, finally! Sunset Bike&Swim yesterday. These are the days I am always waiting for.
Conrod power plant
Taken on a short hike around Ziegenrück. Lake Hohenwarte with former “Conrod” powerplant, which became useless after the damn has been built. (finally it is being renovated)
An awesome “playground” when I was a kid. Now it is owned and access isn’t allowed. (not sure if it was when I was a kid, but in the reunification aftermath, nobody cared)
Another great vagabond weekend came to an end. People, met ages ago got families, kids are growing up fast, some tents became caravans. The spirit in this marvelous group remains the same. The difference between Edersee 2004 and Kiebitzsee these days is the length of the table.
Did I mention how much I love summer?
Is there anything more beautiful and meditative than sitting on a landing stage, watching the sunset and the calm lake looks like a giant mirror. The beginning of a tropical night. I wanted that so much. And I already miss it.
Another lake picture. Did not know I have been to a lake area instead of the Alps. The Grünsee is part of the Weißsee Gletscherwelt at the end of the gorgeous Stubach valley, located in the High Tauern National Park.
Many hiking trails of different length, all are embedded in a breathtaking landscape and peaceful nature are inviting for a trip of your choice. If your trip ends in the Stubachtal again, make sure to stop by the “Alpengasthof Paletti” and try their Kaiserschmarrn. You won’t regret.
Another one taken on the trip to Austria. Usually the Glockner Group would have been visible at the end of the valley. Due to the weather it was not. Not really surprising. The photo did not turn out that bad anyway. I like the trees and their reflection on the right hand side.
Kaprun High Mountain Reserviores
Dam and lake Wasserfallboden as seen from lake Mooserboden. Both lakes are forming the high mountain reserviores of Kaprun. Caused by the unfortunate weather I was not able to have a look at the surrounding summits (Kitzsteinhorn, Großes Wiesbachhorn etc.)
But hey, fresh snow and walking in the clouds! The photo was taken pretty much at 2000 m above sea level.
Best part about kayaking: floating through a silent and smooth lake. I couldn’t imagine a better way to become one with nature. I like it.
