Day 1: Starting our journey with beautiful fall colors.
Day 1: after three hours of continuously ascending through clouds, the sun was out.
Day 1: Guggersee at 1709m. There’s still some time for the fog to catch up, we decided to have lunch at this beautiful spot.
Day 1: Guggersee has a totally different look from the other side. That’s me standing on a rock.
Day 1: continued our climb in the afternoon. In no time we found ourselves surrounded by heavy fog again. My hands were a bit swollen from the coldness.
Day 1: this is how the fog closed in upon us.
Day 1: it was interesting to watch the fog closing in from both sides.
Day 1: me looking at Steinböcke (alpine ibexes), there were a few female ones in front of me.
Day 1: turned around, the sun was out again, for a very brief time!
Day 1: and here are the males! I wonder what kind of team work they are doing.
Day 1: keeping an eye on me? 😉
Day 1: here you can see the females at the bottom left corner and the male ones on the top right.
Day 1: I must remark that they make such cute baby sounds…!
Day 1: “could you go back to check the sign?” “okay” – Sunshine on my path 🙂
Day 2: So, by 15:00 on Day 1 we made it to Fiderescharte at 2214m and later descended down to Fiderepasshütte at 2075m. While we were descending, the fog was so thick that we couldn’t see five meters beyond us. So I had no idea what we walked through, except it being steep and rocky! On the next morning, the fog was a little less thick and you can merely make out the zig-zag path on the mountainside, that’s where we walked the day before to reach the hut.
Day 2: foggy and muddy. Continuing towards Fellhorn.
Day 2: an eye for the detail – when you can’t make out anything further beyond.
Day 2: hot chocolate at Fellhorn panorama restaurant at 2037m. My second cup of hot chocolate during this trip 🙂 always with whipped cream.
Day 2: this gives you an idea of what it looked like 95% of the time on the second day. Took this photo while walking along the ridge.
Day 2: descending from Fellhorn to Söllereck at 1706m. The foggy weather made it easy for me as I didn’t have to take out my camera for once. However, when the sun is out, don’t forget to look back and check for wonders.
