13 August

 

A glorious day; lots of reward without a lot of effort.

We went off on a coach trip to the Rittenbach and Tiefenbach; these are at the top of a side valley rising from Solden. We took the gondola to the top of the Tiefenbach which is 3250m high; we went up with the summer skiers and snowboarders. It was a glorious day with perfect visibility we could see the Dolomites and beyond. But the jewel in the crown was the Wildspitze, Austria's second highest mountain at over 3700m

In on the act again!!    

Back at the bottom again we walked with Mary, Ray and Brian along the Panoramaweg to Vent. This is really easy with a gradual 1000m of descent and we had time to chat to others along the way - well actually Brian wanted to walk quickly but the rest of us were too strong-minded to have anything to do with this. We took 3.5 hours, allowing for a picnic and still at time for a beer at vent before catching the coach. Here is a collection of shots along the way. The final pointed hill which is behind Vent is the Talleitspitze.
