In one of my first posts, “Surprise View”…you may recall the view from our top floor. There was a great mountain I incorrectly describe as ‘not as popular’ as Untersberg. I must have been fatigued, it may not be as popular because it wasn’t mentioned in the Sound of Music, but it is very popular for hiking, biking, paragliding, driving or busing up and drinking at the top. Gotta love those Austrians!
So, although the weather was far from ‘balmy,’ Reed took an early lunch on a weekday (how else will we get to see everything if he doesn’t leave work somedays!?) and we drove to the top as a family. It PAINS ME that we had to drive. Although I am far from a mountaineer, I do love to hike. So to see others reach the top (poles in hand), my heart ached a little. Still, it was great fun to be together on a Wednesday to see Salzburg from a different view.
But, seriously, the view of the Alps here is astonishing- even if we continue to evade bluebird skies.
I reported on Kapuzinerberg hill here…
