A Nice View

I must say this looks like a nice view. Looks like a cold place.
Cheers Josh Lewis

Re: A Nice View

Thanks a lot Josh! The Schmittenhöhe is well known for it's entirely open views to the entire chain of the Hohe Tauern and the fairly close Glockner group in particular!

Re: Nice 1

Thanks a lot, Troy (correct?)! So nice to hear this from you...the Glockner group is indeed a fantastic part of the Austrian mountains - not only because it has Austria's highest! - and I hope that this year, either in August or in September, I can finally find the time to do some real hiking there as well as in the neighboring Venediger group, and post some really great close-up shots!
All the best to you,

great view on one of my favourite peaks

Am I right there are 2 dams or some other man-made structures in the valley?

Re: great view on one of my favourite peaks

You're right - the lower dam is that of the Wasserfallboden lake and the upper dam belongs to Mooserboden lake!
Thanks a lot for your comment and for your vote!
