St Gilgen - Going up !
We've come to Austria to see mountains so today we set off by ferry to the village at the end of the lake, St Gilgen where there is a chairlift that takes you up to the mountain top.
It's not a very high mountain as mountains go but 1600 metres is ok by us.
The views from the top were tremendous !
Absolutely breath taking.
I am using the photo as my new header on Facebook. Isn't it fantastic ???
The weather has been very changeable. Probably typical for Spring but the afternoons usually mean sunshine so we've been pretty lucky.
The cameras got a pretty good workout I can tell you !
On our previous ferry trip we noticed a walking track a from Furberg to St Gilgen so after a rainy morning we once again caught the ferry towards St Gilgen but got off at Furberg.
And trees of glorious colours with wonderful reflections
We hopped off the ferry at Furberg and set off along the path, water on one side and green, green trees on the other.
Love these green tunnels !
It was Mothers' Day and several groups passed us on their way to lunch at the nice restaurant at Furberg.
A lovely walk. We really enjoyed it .
