Gschwendtberg

Small, but steep mountain in the south of Austria

semi-overcast 13 °C

The weather was still ok this mid-november, so we went to southern province of Styria (Steiermark) to climb a small mountain and search for another "treasure".

View down on "Frohnleiten", a cute town surrounded by small mountains.

Soon we reached a viewpoint with a small hut...

... and had a rest and some drink there.

The official name of this hut is "Julius Warte", but the local people call it "small house of delight". ;)

Later we continued to climb higher...

... but unfortunately the top of this mountain was a bit disappointing.
All was surrounded by high trees, so not any interesting view up there!

So we didn't stay there for long, but left soon to search for the treasure...

... which we finally found under those white stones in the center of this picture.
