Sophienalpe, Austria

23 April 2020

A first "real" hike again, after more than a month. Through the Pötzleinsdorfer Schlosspark and Schwarzenbergpark, up to Hameau, over to the Sophienalpe, and then back down into the city. Gorgeous day.

The Bärlauch (wild garlic) was in full bloom everywhere! Almost looks like a thin layer of snow on the ground.

The Sophienalpe.
