Moonlit Hechlstein Western Ridge


2021-09-18 Hechlstein Summit Cross The western ridge towards Hechlstein is a favorite of mine and I've enjoyed it during hot summer days, cold spring evenings with firn and during cool evenings close to sunset. Last week I added "moonlit" and "slightly-past-sunset" to my list 😁. I used to do a loop, but I really enjoy the scramble eastward towards the ridge and then the view west on the way back is at least as rewarding:

2021-06-26 Latschur Summit Cross We enjoyed several days on camp sites in Carinthia over the past weekends and got to explore Millstätter and Weissensee. Both are great for family visits as the water is amazingly clean, especially Weissensee. Before we left I got some time to go up Latschur and enjoy a full 360 degrees of beautiful mountain ranges:
