Austria 2008

Looking east from the Stubnerkogel to the mountains on the other side of the Gastein Valley (Austria). The first snow already settled on the mountain tops by the end of October.

The day started for me with a little migraine. So we only took a short walk to the portal of the Tauern Tunnel. Luckily the effects of the migraine weren’t too bad and by midday things were getting better. The buddy I was on vacation with wanted to relax for the day, but in the afternoon I got the urge for action and so I got on my bike again just to see how far I could get. And that was surprisingly far, with a slight incline I managed to climb quite a few meters before I looked at the map for the first time. And when I saw that I had already cycled a long way towards the Stubnerkogel, I had the ambition to reach the summit as well. The sun was already low, but I made it. I happily took some pictures from above and enjoyed the view before I went down the 1000 metres back into the valley. Thanks to dynamo lights I didn’t have to worry about the dark and I was back at the accommodation anyway before it was really dark.
