Bicycle tour 25.4.2012

After a period of cool weather with rain and late new snow on the high summits, it cleared this morning, so I make use of the free morning for a bicycle on the fields between Winzendorf, Saubersdorf and St. Egyden/Urschendorf, then further up to Würflach and back via Willendorf.

Schneeberg and flourishing oil see rape - a good combination for pretty pictures ...

Winzendorf´s limestone quarry.

Kingcups (Caltha palustris) near a small water course

Further along this narrow gravel road ...

View fromo that small hill with the chapel and the antenna tower.

Back down from the hill ...

Shortly before Urschendorf, View to the Wechsel region, also snow covered.

Schneeberg, Hohe Wand to the right.

The church of St. Egyden

View back with a glimpse of Hohe Wand.

Once more St. Egyden´s church.

Furthjer on a bit, now between Gerasdorf and Würflach.



Hohe Wand, in the foreground to the right is Willendorf.

First houses of Würflach

Shortly behind Willendorf heading for Strelzhof I have a look to a wet grassland  ...

 ... with first exemplars of Heath Spotted orchid (Dactylorhiza maculata) unsheathing their flowers.

Kingcups are found here too.

View from Dörfles to Schneeberg.
