Alpine Roads

Today we're driving. Winding roads, pine trees, waterfalls, granite protrutions, craggy mountain tops, cows with bells, wood huts, sudden charmingly clustered villages. That pretty much sums it up. I forgot to mention the steep mountainsides. We're in the Hohe Tauern National Park for most of the day. We'll drive the Glossglockner Road, 48 k's of gorgeous, so they say. Last night we dined on dumplings, baked potatoes with the best sour cream I've tasted and home made noodles in Innsbruck. A seriously pretty city. Charming buildings and we were even lucky enough to catch some of the classical music festival coming from a stately court yard. I felt, at that moment, that I was in the heart of old Europe. We camp tonight in the Salzkammergut.
