Escaping the fog
28.11.2006 10 °C
November 28 was a very foggy day in Linz, but south in the mountains there should be sunny conditions.
Well, we saw only a little sun this day, but the weather was definitely much nicer than at home and so we could enjoy some nice views on our short climb of mountain Predigtstuhl.
The route is short, but still requires some climbing.
About half way up there's a nice place to rest, from where one has a nice view on the highest mountain of the province of Upper Austria.
Mountain Dachstein, nearly 3000 meters high. Its top is covered by snow for all the year.
Me and my honey with lake Hallstättersee in the background.
At this lake is a very lovely village, which is so cute that it's often printed on posters which are sold world-wide.
We plan to visit there some day next year.
When continuing our way up there were more difficult parts to climb.
Needing a break and a drink...
...but soon we reached the top...
...which is offering some beautiful views.
I wished I could fly!
In Austria fog is very common in late autumn, and sometimes can cover the ground below for the whole day.
That's why it's a good idea to climb a mountain on these foggy days, because usually the fog won't reach very high, and above the fog one can find nice weather and great views.
Predigtstuhl isn't very high, but still a nice piece of a rocky mountain.
