14 August

 

Our last full day in Obergurgl and the weather was lovely. We set off up the Ramolsweg (past some early morning marmots) with the vague thought of going to the Ramolshaus. This was not a good idea; there were a lot of people on the path and there was an element of a race about it all. The weather made this very silly. 

So we took a path off near the Kuppelhutte, a disused house, and even though it meant a steeper climb to begin with we soon got to the high meadows of the Seenplatte. There were very few people about and it was really lovely and peaceful up there. Whilst we were having lunch, we were looking down on a hovering kestrel; the sight was a bit special.

The climb back down is a bit fierce; I was glad we'd done it this way round.
