From the Franz Josefs Höhe back down to Heiligenblut. Simply stunning...

The view of the Grossglockner (Austria's highest mountain at 3798m) from the Franz Josefs Höhe

Then down to the glacial lake.

Skiing down a snowpatch on my hiking boots.

The little mountain village of Heiligenblut is down there.

The Gössnitz waterfall.

And then some panoramas (scroll right to see it all).
