Good Start. It will be interesting to see the routes for this climb.
Do you realize you have created an immense database on these mountains that really had no representation on the web before you decided to document them?
You are breaking new ground my friend, and you should win a grant from the tourism departments of Austria and Slovenia and whatever other countries you have documented!
Your pages are wonderful.
Thanks again for the nice coment!
Awesome page Gangolf! I loved all your photos on this page. There was something cool in every one of them. Great job and have a good one!
Thanks Britt! You seem easy to please ;-) Have a nice one, too
Yes Gangolf what can I say :-)
O I know! See my new page tommorow! ;-)
Nice work like always!
Yes, I wanted to keep the pressure on you ;-)
Thanks a lot
Classic Gangolf work, meaning great!
Nice work, Gangolf - as always, a well written and interesting page. -but what's the deal with the pic of the snake?
Interesting about the GPS readings. I get odd results sometimes but never that much of a discrepancy. What brand/model do you use?
Thanks Don! I use a Garmin GPSMAP 76s but I think the reading was accurate enough if compared with the numbers on the maps. I'm pretty sure the sign on the summit was off by 10m. As for the "snake" - I like to put shots of nature into pages which otherwise seem to lack some ummph. It's a way of reminding myself that there is more to a mountain than just the mountain.
Actually it's not really a snake, rather a lizard without the legs - which sounds dumb but you would see from the head (in larger magnification), which is a lizard's head. And of course - if you looked at the sceleton you could see the remainders of arms and legs.
And probably this is exactly the reason why I posted this picture - to find someone to teach something about. Must be the teacher genes in me....
Thanks a lot!
Great job as usual.... Interesting to place the snake photo under the 'Red Tape' section!
Thanks Joseph! I somehow decided that red tape stands for all the things you have to take care of when you go out into nature. Here in Europe you rarely have the kind of red tape you encounter elsewhere - no fees, no closures, no permits. Everything is so close together that "managing" nature (the little bits in between the towns and villages - doesn't make too much sense. More often you have to deal with farmers, herds of cattle or sheep, gates and fences. But usually everyone lets you through their land.
And then you start to think about the "Red Tape" section and realize that most of the red tape was installed to protect nature. And that's why I put these bits of nature - animals, flowers - into this section.
Sounds incoherent? Well, it's quite late right now ;-)
