No more putting your feet up! But again a little evening stroll. We wanted to see what the damsel is doing and what is going on in the castle dungeon ..... of course the fair girl was not there and had locked off. So in vain took the arduous footpath (Spatzi didn't want to go the via ferrata at all). Well, at least 60 Hm jumped out ... on this lazy day

After the tour yesterday I was hoping for a 'lazy' day. Actually there should be bad weather ... but since the word 'actually' doesn't really exist, it was really nice and Spatzi wanted to take out her e-vehicle again.
It should be a short walk ... First on the Drau cycle path to Lienz, 30km always nice downhill (I was only thinking of the way back🥴) and then on the Iseltal cycle path to Huben. I had already tested yesterday. A few ballet and gymnastics performances along the way and, of course, cake and shandy in Lienz. On the way back, Spatzi really worked hard and set the pace ... then rain threatened from the direction in which we had to go.
So, now but really tomorrow day of rest!

Today a solo tour (Spatzi was on a women's excursion😉), let's see what is still in those troubled legs. And to be honest, it was very tough after the 'activities' of the last 1 1/2 weeks. I'm looking forward to the bad weather forecast and a day or two of rest😄.
The tour itself was great. First on the Drauweg to Lienz and then on the Iselradweg (really great) to Huben. From there over the Defereggental the ascent to the Staller Sattel ... phew, my legs were turned up like a meat grinder🥵.
Departure to the Antholz Valley only possible every full hour ... I had a 45-minute break and nothing against it. I treated myself to a Coke for 5 €. Then the descent down to Lake Anterselva ... unfortunately the motorcyclists driving ahead braked a lot ... so always try to start in pole position if possible😅.
Then a very quick descent from Lake Anterselva towards Pustertal. Thought it would only go downhill anyway ... puff cake😒. Legs already muddy and then a few more inclines. In Innichen I met Spatzi by chance and then went to a nice cafe to enjoy the remaining sun and drinks and sack.
An all-round successful day ... but now wellness😄
Speaking of which, the indicated Hm at Komoot do not fit, I think, are more like 1900

Today again a pleasure round without steep climbs. Via Toblach, Dürensee, Misurinasee through the fantastic 'Dolomitenschaupark' towards Cortina. This area is simply fantastic, even though we have hiked through it a few times. From Cortina then back over the old railway line towards San Candido / Toblach. Once again we were absolutely thrilled. Even if a large part of the route, definitely 40 km or more, was on gravel. The tour is highly recommended!

Today we went back to the steel roller after 2 days of hiking. The Pustertaler Höhenstrasse was taken under the wheels. Almost no traffic, as the damage from the last landslide is still being repaired in one area. Saturday & Sunday the way is open ..... apparently the word has not got around yet ... also good😄
The steeper sections have been a real feast for the hikers who are plagued by hikers🥵. Then there were just enough photo stops ... and there were enough to take pictures. Great views, great little villages and then the rapid descent towards Lienz. Ok, often waited for Spatzi☺ ... 30+ is just about to fly.
From Lienz we went back on the Drau Cycle Path with a short, refreshing downpour in between.
Conclusion: I and Berge will no longer be close friends😄 .... still a long way to go

Today the hiking bunk is laced again and again a mountain with a 1A all-round panorama. In between, just before the summit, sleet & rain ... but that didn't even need a rain jacket. At the top of the summit then sun but the next thick clouds only allowed a short stay ... Spatzi got nervous, shortly before panic ... so down again. The way back was actually planned differently from about halfway through but a few stubborn cattle didn't want to give us the way. Despite a bypass they trotted behind us and with all the evasive maneuvers we somehow missed the way ... that is, cross-country and on the same way back down. At the Unterstaller Alm there was first of all a treat😋

Moved the location from Riva to East Tyrol / Sillian yesterday. Today the 1st hike in great weather. The temperatures compared to Lake Garda are ... well, took some getting used to. In the morning to start in limestone about 6⁰ ... brrrr. With the sun came the warmth and at 2200m it was almost too warm with no wind. Then the cold shock on the Pfannhorn ... Sun gone and an ice-cold wind. So long sleeves and a scarf on. But this view of the Dolomites (unfortunately a bit too hazy for perfect) and the surrounding mountains ... and that accompanied us on the second third of the tour. Just beautiful. A short rest at the Marchkinkerle at the cavern and then it went back into the valley .... a great day of hiking on a panoramic summit of the 1st rank !! .... and of course the sun came out again😊

Today another mountain program for the Bergstift ... again a great 1A-5⭐ tour with everything the region has to offer. Great landscape, nice little villages and, of course, 2 or 3 horns in the program. That of course led to another photo orgy😉. But now it's good with mountains .... tomorrow day of rest

Today my first Hupsel, which you could also call a mountain. Approx. 15km only uphill. On the first 3km it starts really well, 10-15% ... if only 8% then it can be seen as relaxation. Took a while to find the 'right' step. But after about halfway things went quite well. It's nice when you arrive 'at the top' and know that you've made it. Then an airy descent and Spatzi then happened another mishap with a very sharp turn ... then it was with minor wounds. And the worse evil was the route chosen there ... most violent gravel with at least 15% gradient about 1.5 km ..... so pushing. But after that everything was fine ... and both of them were happy afterwards on the lake. But I don't think I'll be a mountain climber anymore ...

Today cycling shoes were exchanged for hiking bunkers again. It should go from Mezzolago on Lake Ledro up to the Cima d'Oro. Weather report was so-so, possibly with rain and thunderstorms ... and you really don't want to be out in the mountains with Spatzi during thunderstorms. Oh, then there's a treat for the ears🤕. But it looked rather good, so off we went. Right at the beginning, up a somewhat steeper road, I noticed ... it was going to be difficult, legs like yesterday's bottle empty. And it should always be nice and steep for the next 2 1/2 hours, without a lot of sweeping uphill. Then the first glimpses of Lake Ledro. And the first remnants of former combat positions from the war. Then finally over the tree line with great views. Unfortunately also the first thick rain clouds and rumblings. Spatzi was getting nervous. Still a short rest in the sun below the Cima d'Oro ... very, very nice there. The rumbling in the distance grew louder, the first light rain ... the snow was too poor for a quick descent into the valley and the hiking bunk was not waxed. That means step up a gear and off we went .... a somewhat shortened tour with great views in the summit area
