A \'stone window\' near...
A 'stone window' near Hauselalm, in the Hochschwab region. This kind of thing is in my opinion fairly rare in the Alps. May 2003

Well, in limestone mountains you can find stone windows quite often. But they are allways beautiful. Thanks for posting this nice picture!

I'm glad you like it. I have only come across one stone-window except this one, and that was in the Fagaras mountains (Southern Carpathians, Romania).

Come once in Slovenia. In Julian Alps there are many. Especially known are both stone windows of Prisojnik.

Well, to tell you the truth, I've been in the Julian Alps twice and that's one of my favourite mountain ranges! I swam in one of the Triglav Lakes before going up Triglav, which was great. I also passed through Vrsic by car, but did not go up to Prisojnik. Next time - maybe this summer - I certainly will look for the stone windows there, thanks for telling me about them!

I have come across quite a lot of windows myself - and not only in limestone. The most famous one is Capu Tafunatu in Corsica, made of red granite!

Cheers Gangolf
