Kids´ riding lession in Puchberg and with the sunny but a bit windy weather I opt for a nice walk arouind the hamlet of Knipflitz. From the Halmerhof I start heading for Schneebergdörfl, there I turn to the right for Losenheim and return back to the horse-farm via Sonnleiten and Hof.
... has seen some new snow recently which was falling as rain down here.
Everything is green therefore.
Rocks are peering in the Breite Ries - not good for a skiing tour.
View to Puchberg ...
... and Pfenningbach, with Hohe Wand in behind.
This Yellow Cornel bush looks rather bare in this picture, ...
... but a closer look reveals numerous flower buds - mind you: in February at an altitude of 700 m asl!
The ruin of Losenheim
Losenheim´s ski pists are still in use due to artificial snow. If they are lucky, a frosty night could give them the opportunity to produce some more.
I walk down heading for Sonnleiten.
Protection fences against snow cornices.
Besides the Sebastian beck near Sonnleiten I find the first snow drops.
Near Hof I return to the road.
Sebastian beck, a bit more down.
