Rise and Shine. The view from our hotel window and the morning sun glinting on the Hallstatter See.
The Protestant Church in the morning sun.
This picture wasn’t lifted off the internet. I took it!
After a bit of shopping and walking the streets, we took the rail up to the top of the mountain next to Hallstatt.
It’s just too bad it wasn’t pretty. This was the view from our lunch table. I KNOW, right?!
Despite the fact that we were exhausted and our legs were burning, we decided to take the cable car up the mountain on the other side of the lake. GREAT decision.
We ended up at the very highest peak and could see for miles.
We spent a good deal of time watching local paragliders take off. And I wished desperately one of them would take me along.
We added rocks to a stack that had been started on the edge of the cliff. It was slightly precarious, but ‘sall good now so…
We then headed out to the Five Fingers platform which held you directly over the 2,000 km cliff wall. It was exhilerating and terrifying all at once.
I don’t know how this view could ever get old.
Everyone should kiss on an Austrian mountaintop at least once in life. Just sayin’…
We ended the day watching the moon rise over the mountaintop. Perfection.
Tomorrow – Tuscany!
