Kleiner Ötscher, Austria

31 July 2019

From the little village of Lackenhof up to the top of the Kleiner Ötscher and back down on the other side. A mostly cloudy hike with hazy views, but very nice anyway!

Some morning fog in the trees.

And up we go.

Let's see who gets there first...

The top of the Ötscher covered in clouds.

My goal for today was more moderate: the Kleiner Ötscher.

Almost at the top.

With its obligatory cross.

The Ötscher still covered.

Then back down on the other side.

And finally back at the little village of Lackenhof.

With its cute church.

That evening it was raining for quite a while...
