Hohe Wand 12.1.2012

Today, I only manage to leave my home at 10 a.m., so there isnīt time enough for a longer walk. So, I spintaneously decide to drive up Hohe Wand.

At first, I drive to my favourite view point, Waldeggerhaus. Panoramic view to Plackles (Hohe Wand) and to Schneeberg, Duerre Wand, Oetscher, Unterberg ... Click here or into the picture for a larger version.


Oetscher, with a large snow banner. Powdery new snow is blown from the summit. I cannot remember having seen Oetscher from here that clearly.



Back on the road to the Postl inn. I abstain from visiting Skywalk, but have a short walk to the escarpment.

Heading for Skywalk ...

 ... which can be seen from here as a very partial glimpse. In the background Lake Neusiedel. Excellent visibility today, indeed.

Now I walk through forest to the Hochkogelhaus, just to find it closed during winter. Every access to the terrace also is closed, so no pictures from here. However ...

 ... there are a few athmospheric pictures from snowy winter forest.
