VitalpseeMay 21 in Austria
Today was a trip to the alps. Uschi and Theresa came over and we all climbed into Stefan’s wagon and headed to the Allgau. It was a beautiful day and driving through the lush green country was gorgeous. All the little towns looked quaint with their typical German houses all decked out in their spring flowers.
After parking the car we caught a little train to a small lake up in the mountains. Stunning vista with the blue lake, green mountains still with snow on the tops, waterfalls and blue sky.
After a slow walk around to the end of the lake we stopped for lunch at a typical alpine hut. Wurst und kase! After filling our bellies we continued our walk around the lake.
Nate had his first experience with stinging nettles after walking through some grass by the side of the road. Not very impressed by the experience.
To return to the beginning of the walk we had to cross a bit of snow that was across the path. Nate had made some ice picks from sticks and thought it was a great adventure.
Just as we were returning to the train lightning and thunder started around us.
When we got back to town we stopped for a well deserved coffee and ice cream.Read more
