conquering Schober mountain in austria

On the 21st of july, we set about climbing the a 1388m high mountain - schober mountain. It was no easy task for the four of us: Maria, barbara Harry and me. We got into the best mountain climbing gear we could find and then started the climb at about 10 am in the morning.

It was a treacherous terrain and often along the way, we slid or held on the big tree trunks. I lost count on how many times we drank water or stop to take in a more calm breathe. But since we were determined, we went on and on slowly until we finally reached the top.
The view here from top of schober mountain is breath-taking.

At the top of the mountain is a big black cross and here we relaxed and showed our winning smiles :o) There is me, Maria (red pants) and barbara.
