Austria 2002

In 2002 I paid my second visit to the Alpbachtal area in the Austrian Tyrol as a guide for the photographer Alan Simpson. I took the opportunity to take Alan to the top of several mountains where the views were absolutely astounding.

On the ridge of the grosser Galtenberg

This was the view looking back towards Alpbach from a lower  ridge on the Grosser Galtenberg.

Pleasent walking on the lower slopes

The lower slopes around Alpbach made for some very pleasant walking.

Identifying the mountains from the map

The local tourist walking map had a very useful 3D map on the reverse which named some of the larger mountains on the horizon.

That ‘On top of the World’ feeling.

I may have went too far according to this sign!!!

A visit to the Grossglockner, the largest mountain in Austria  is a must on any visit, but tread carefully!

A bit further up the glacier
