Our first day of the vacation: we hiked from Jenesien all across Tschögglberg onto the second highest summit, Kreuzjoch, bypassing Stoanerne Mandln only by a few metres. We only realize what we had achieved after we arrived back at the apartment and read the GPS readings: 35.6km and 1400+m of elevation gain. We were very grateful that our hosts invited us to a "Brotzeit" (supper) at night, complete with local wine, bread, cheese, speck (bacon), potatoes etc.
