I just spent one day in the Alps and discovered another great hiking area with possible winter hike possibilities. The area around the Kaltenbergerhütte is not just surrounded by a great panoramic scenery but also the area to run free for easy more than 100 Haflinger horses.
3rd Day Konstanzer Hütte :
This day we had a spotless sky right from the sunset. It was a joy to see the sun rising and illuminating the surrounding mountains. While I took some photos my ears felt quite quick strange and cold. I found out that we had -20 C, that was the explanation. We prepared a hot soup, had a coffee, cleaned up the hut and made our way down the valley.
Not to forget to have some breaks in between to look back to where we´ve been and think about what great time we had. Lively and honest discussions, opinions, storys and advices. A time which should not be forgotten too early and be absorbed to soon by “Mondays”.
Konstanzer Hütte 2nd Day:
Due a really high avalanche risk on this day and the extreme steep part on the last part to the next mountain hut, the Mannheimer Hütte we decided to have a lazy day. Which started to go to the toilet with the snoeshoes on. Later that day we made a short trip without the heavy backpacks in the forrest not far from the hut. Returning we digged an Iglu for all four of us to gathered some skills to prepare shelters in the snow. The artist of our group carved some great faces out of candlewax. So this was really the day to relax and enjoy the easy way of living up there. What you need to be happy? Warmth, Food and good company
