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

Old tools, Anchor, Heart and Cross Axehead:
On the way to Konstanz I passed by a barnsale/fleamarket and for a couple of bucks I bought this bag of old tools. Needless to say I stored it away and picked it up on the way back. Today when I started to clean the axeheads I discovered this great hallmark of a cross, a heart and an anchor.

The meaning I found is:
The cross and anchor together were first used in Christian catacombs to represent hope based on the belief in Jesus Christ. The heart was added later to represent charity. The three symbols together represent the Christian tenants of faith, hope, and charity.

I really like this special axehead and now I have to find a well fitting piece of wood for it.
