Neualplseen, Austria

19 September 2019

A very "mystical" hike, quite literally. Hiked through the clouds the whole time. Supposedly this is an amazing hike, but I didn't get to see very much of it. Although I must admit it did result in at least some interesting pictures.

A furry & foggy marmot.

I wasn't the only one lost in the mist...

I even entered the "Hohe Tauern" (high towers) national park at some point.

But this was about the highest tower I saw on the whole hike!

Then the lakes. Straight out of a fairy tale...

And back down again.

Of course by the time I was almost back, the sun came out once in a while...
