EISriesonwelt Birthday Alpine Adventure

Norm: Not far from Salzburg is the largest ice cave in the world. We drive up the mountain. We climb the mountain. We take a gondola, then climb some more...

At last, there it is. Inside the cave we climb some more. 700 steps up then 700 steps back down.

These shots were clandestine, so do not do the cave justice. But it was absolutely spectacular. Visitors are given carbide davy lamps for climbing the stairs and our guide used magnesium flares for the spectacular effect.

After the caves we just had to hit one more castle with a rose garden. Here is the most beautiful rose of all.Posted by Picasa
