Hohe Wand 14.1.2010
Today, wintery high fog is covering the plains. Due to a slight of a chance for sunshine I decide to dirve up Hohe Wand in the morning.
First gaps in the carpet, and a bit of low dust over Neue Welt. View from the tollgate in direction Netting
Maiersdorf and Hohe Wand
At the parking place near Kleine Kanzel. It is growing lighter, but still fog is drawing around.
I let the pictures speak for themselves ...
In "Wanddoerfel", kind of tiny hamlet on the plateau
Near the Plackles inn
Back in Wanddoerfel
Three layers are covering the trees: snow, then ice (frozen rain) and fresh hoarfrost.
Icycles, covered with hoarfrost
Back at "Kleine Kanzel" - the fog is going to lift and releases the view ...
to Schneeberg - here Elisabethīs chapel and the summit station of the rack railway.
And the summit
Zooming out - much fog still ...
At last a free view for some short moments.
On the way back, at the foresterīs lodge ...
... and on a short detour to Waldeggerhaus
Half way back: the new rock fall - protection roof of the road. Fog is also lifting here.
View to Muthmannsdorf ...
... and back to the walls..
