We spent the day hiking up in the Austrian alps … took a cable car 🚠 1853 meters to the top of Untersberg Mt. It was the most extreme one I’ve been on yet. Took my breath away at times.
Once to the top we hiked another 45 minutes to the next summit over rock trails and steps cut into the hillside. It was worth it though as it gave us a 360° panoramic view. It was absolutely stunning. There are no words to describe how beautiful this was — I cried thinking how much Rodney would have loved experiencing this.
Once down we headed to Hellbrunn Palace & Gardens. It was built in the early 1600’s and the highlight was the “trick fountains”. The archbishop at the time had quite a sense of humor and made these fountains that would pop on at the most unlikely times and spray you as you walk thru enjoying the gardens. Pretty funny. They also house the gazebo there from the “16 going on 17” scene in the sound of music.
Quote of the day: “I was looking for the antlers. But it was a doe. A deer. A female deer.” 🎶Read more
