Hiking on green grass below high rocks

sunny 24 °C

This sunday we drove 2 hours by car to do some middle-length hike near some bizarre rocks at the border of the Salzburg and the Upper Austria region.

Already from the street we could see the nice mountain scenery

The high mountain in the middle of the picture is called "Bischofsmuetze", as its two peaks are looking like a bishop's hat.

It's also a famous place for rock-climbing.

We parked our car near the "Oberfeldalm", a place which many people were visiting to have lunch and walk around in the beautiful surrounding.

At Oberfeldalm, the kids also have an area to play...

...and a chance to see some cute animals.

However, we did not stay too long at Oberfeldalm, as we have come here to do some hiking...

...mixed with a bit of climbing.

Later we happened to get close to some local animals (ie cows).

During our hike we got many more lovely views of mountain Bischofsmuetze...

...and the surrounding areas.

Having a rest and a beer.

Continuing our way...

...until we saw a hut in the distance...

We had a rest and some food at the other side of the hut.

The mountain on the right is already part of the "Dachstein" mountain group, which is the highest mountain in the province of Upper Austria.

Maybe we will climb that later some day.

Finally we also had another drink at the place shown above.

It was already 21:00 in the evening, but at this time of the year it is still not dark in Austria.
