Having spent a week on my mountain, it was time to do some longer and steeper walks again so it was back to Oberstdorf but this time avoiding waterfalls! Day 1 was spent on a flatter walk and on day 2 the only way was up! Although due to time constraints we came down by cable car which confused Lizzie! Surprisingly little ...
Day 286 6 hrs, 12.1 kms Next morning I head down to another lake. Across the lake I see for the first time mountains completely cover in snow.

Now that I've discovered that you can sleep in a warm bed and not blow your budget here in Austria, I'm not in such a hurry to move on. But the mountain awaits me. I fix my gaze on the narrowing valley up ahead and continue down the ...
