Another toll road (€8) to take you high into the mountains without a lift. Follow the signs. Not a drive to do if you haven’t got a head for heights, lots of steep drop offs on narrow roads with no fences!
And keep driving. Gorgeous views as you make your way up
Some cows were collecting the tolls
And then we drove even higher into the cloud
And we walked in the cloud
It’s a flat walk the easy way to the Rastkogelhutte, where we had lunch. This hut seemed to serve a variety of soups, which were very tasty, but not a great deal else (except cake!).
Out of the Rastkogelhutte we climbed up to the top. No views today.
There are a couple of routes up, it turned out when we reached the sign that we had come the difficult (black dot) route.
This was due to the descent on a ridge that was much more ridge-like than I remembered! So much so part of it had a safety wire in place!
Not so very easy with a mini in the front sling. But we carefully made our way down, though I was glad Evie was asleep and not wriggling!
Finally the clouds broke and we had some part views
Then Evie woke up just as we were headed back to the car
And we drove down into a much warmer, sunnier valley below!
