More Snow...: Tannheimer Tal
two days of falling snow which has a very special quality, it's still new, it's not icy or dirty yet, and it keeps coming. thick layers of it hanging over everything, paths need to be prepared. In the Tannheimer Tal, a high lying valley just over the border in Austria, about two hours drive from my parents house, so they go there quite often, the valley and the lower lying tracks are prepared and some of the alpine huts/restaurants are open, so winter walking is possible (and recommended!) After two days of drifting snow suddenly sunshine and a very pristine white valley emerged on our last morning there.
