Hohe Wand 14.1.2010

Today, wintery high fog is covering the plains. Due to a slight of a chance for sunshine I decide to dirve up Hohe Wand in the morning.

First gaps in the carpet, and a bit of low dust over Neue Welt. View from the tollgate in direction Netting

Maiersdorf and Hohe Wand

At the parking place near Kleine Kanzel. It is growing lighter, but still fog is drawing around.

I let the pictures speak for themselves ...


In "Wanddoerfel", kind of tiny hamlet on the plateau



Near the Plackles inn



Back in Wanddoerfel

Three layers are covering the trees: snow, then ice (frozen rain) and fresh hoarfrost.


Icycles, covered with hoarfrost

Back at "Kleine Kanzel" - the fog is going to lift and releases the view ...

to Schneeberg - here Elisabethīs chapel and the summit station of the rack railway.

And the summit

Zooming out - much fog still ...

At last a free view for some short moments.

On the way back, at the foresterīs lodge ...

 ... and on a short detour to Waldeggerhaus

Half way back: the new rock fall - protection roof of the road. Fog is also lifting here.

View to Muthmannsdorf ...

 ... and back to the walls..
