Dachstein Glacier is located in Styria, Austria. In winter, it’s a popular ski destination, but I was lucky enough to experience it at the end of summer. 

Beautiful, right?

Those tiny dots are people hiking the glacier. We hiked a bit, but instead of hiking the whole route opted to climb the rocky hill from where this photo was taken. It had some great views!

In the end, we were glad we didn’t do the whole hike because the clouds started rolling in and it got COLD! I guess that’s what happens were you’re 2,700 meters (8,800 feet) above sea level!

Just for fun, here’s a link to the Dachstein’s website. It has a few options for live cams of the area. Pretty neat. 

And now for some news. I’ve been on hiatus due to the fact that I packed up and moved away from Austria, traveled around California for two weeks and stayed in Colorado for two more weeks. That’s a lot of packing, unpacking and repacking. I’m finally back in Oklahoma where I’ll be spending some much needed family time before I begin my next adventure in (for those of you who don’t already know) VIETNAM!
