Another week another peak

10 08 2011

This time I was headed for Krumbachstein, a 1.600m peak in the “Viennese Alps”. A nice trip altogether, but an expensive one. I ended up sacrificing my camera to make a short movie of the heaviest rain I have ever experienced being outside – let aside some crazy rains when sailing.

Before you ask: I was not hiking in a creek, the rain simply flooded the hiking trail. But see for yourself.

Fortunately this happened only during the last hour on the way down… it started out as quite a pretty day, see album below.
