Attention: Fairies, gnomes, dwarfs, and other magical creatures lurking everywhere
I am a bit short for words when it comes to writing about what I want to share with you today. Maybe it is just best that you see for yourself…
With my mother and my daughter I went on a child friendly hike, not like the last one I described here. I do think that this is is one of my favourite hiking trails ever! Of course there is distance, of course there is altitude, of course there are risks. But there is above all beauty, beauty, and beauty everywhere.
Down in the valley, in the Zillertal, to be precise it was raining, the clouds were hanging low, but here in the Märzengrund, there was a bit of sun here and there. And how was I happy once we finally came across some water to drink (I was so thirsty I drank the water running down the mountain) and then there were the wild blueberries here and there to give us some extra sugar to keep on going.
The Märzengrund hike for us did not end on a summit, no our goal was to reach the Gemünd Alm, where you get the world’s best Kaiserschmarren. What is Kaiserschmarren you might ask? It is a sort of messed up pancake with a lot of icing sugar, served with a sour jam made of lingon berry a cranberry like fruit (it does not at all grow like cranberries though).
In total with the break we must have walked for 6 hours. I do walk a lot, but generally not six hours per day, how would I find time to blog?
I hope you enjoy all of those magical pictures I took on this hike.
