take pride in your fears







I bought this postcard at Munich airport on my February 2015 flight to USA. I was travelling with lots of fear for my 3 day hike in remote Canyonlands Needles district. The card reflected my Motivation: despite your fears – Just do it. The design is from German artist Julia Schongauer. There is  a whole series of this stile of cards/illustrations and all are pretty heart warming, beautiful and  admirabe. Have a look here: Juju’s Delivery

the fotos are in chronological order. (Notte for myself: … Have to eat again the Plum Knoedel in vanillasauce at Moastery of Schäftlarn – good combo with Franziskaner Wheat beer :-).

Hike to Mt. Heidachstellwand 2192 m (7191 ft), Austrian Alps

My first home hike in 2013 goes to M. Heidachstellwand 2192 m (7191 ft) in the Austrian Rofan mountains above idylic Lake Achen (929m / 3047 ft).

A short hike, but strenous due to an elevation change of 1263 m (4143 ft), and still snow near the peak. We climbed from the trailhead at 923m height (3028 ft) in about 2 3/4 hours, up to 2192 m (7191 ft) .

The return we did from mid mountain with the Rofan mountain cable car. A nice experience was to see first time in my life wild groundhog’s. Furthermore little bit of chill to climb the little via ferrata.

Collection of Desert Wild Flower photos

On my 2011 South-Utah Northern Arizona Trip I had the luck of hiking the deserts right after rainy springtime. I was amazed by the many colors and different flowers amid the dry and sparse desert landscape. It made me stop several times to take a photo with my small Ixus camera which I have always at hand.I dedicated here a collection of all these shots when hikingin the deserts around  Escalante (UT) Page (AZ) and in the Zion area. Sometimes quality is not the best but I liked the flowers and colors so I still added the photo to this album. Just click on the foto below to open the album.
