There I had nevertheless times a good idea. Immediately after closing time in the afternoon, I set off for a short round over the Gurgler Heide.
The ascent leads right behind our hotel quite steeply uphill into the Verwalltal.
Soon I pass beautiful, dark purple flowers. I think it is aconite (attention: poisonous!), but just very nice to look at. Should this picture not be said plant, please correct me here.
And further uphill until I stand under the Top Express.
For our winter guests certainly an unusual perspective.
I also took the opportunity to wear my new hiking boots and poles today.
At #sportlohmann I was once again given the best advice and I am highly satisfied.
Thirsty? - You can drink the 1TP3 spring water of the crystal clear streams everywhere here in the mountains.
At the #topexpress - the connecting cable car that connects the skiing area at the Festkogel with the skiing area Hochgurgl. A look back, a look forward with a wonderful panorama. And then the construction site of the new 10-person Rosskar gondola lift comes into view. All winter guests in #obergurglhochgurgl can already look forward to this.
And on we go. Always with a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains and glaciers. My legs feel good. It's nice to run like this, to feel how the movement and the fresh air does you good.
Now I am already on the descent and Obergurgl comes into sight again. Suddenly I see them. Kohlröschen, or in dialect #brunelle. These beautiful, dark red flowers are strictly protected. I also just photographed them and sniffed them. As small as these flowers are, their fragrance is very strong.
And already I am back at the hotel #alpenlandobergurgl.
What a beautiful hike. Not too far and such great views.
