Sazburg I | Hallstatt

The rain & thunder will not deter us from adventures! We spent a week in Salzburg earlier in the summer (even though these pictures would certainly convince you that it was indeed autumn) and took off on a rainy day trip through the rural country side to Hallstatt. I even managed to take some shots while weaving in and out of tourists.

It was cold and wet and beautiful. We were surrounded by mountains and beautiful lakes – the Hallstätter See shown here – and the fog rolled down the hills and through the pine trees to cool us as we explored. Flowers and greenery exploded out of cute windows in typical Austrian fashion. There were so many nooks and crannies and hidden pathways on the face of the mountain, filled with wells and ferns and ivy, perfect to over look the city.

Later, we stopped at a cafĂ© to dry and warm up, while we enjoyed some delicious cake – mine was egg liquor (similar to eggnog!), chocolate and almond, and Seb's was an apple, chocolate and cherry cake (his was better!). A perfect date.

On the way back we stopped at the grandparent's farm and visited the baby cows, bunnies, cats, and hens, and I realized I am in desperate need of rubber rain boots. The calf in the photo was called Jakob.
