Our first day was wonderful, nerve-wracking, but just so refreshing!
As we were going up the cable car to the Zugspitz, Hubby said, “Cool, a lake.” Of course I was not really paying attention, I was just trying to remember to inhale and exhale.
At dinner, we chatted about what we wanted to do the next day. I said what about the lake. We agreed! Love it when that happens!
The Eibsee was just beyond amazing. We spent over five hours just hiking around.
Here is why!
What better way to start your day! The sun was out. The clouds were just accent pieces to the sky.
There were a lot of people who had the same thoughts we did. There was a kids biathlon going on. It was so cool to watch these little guys and gals jump out of the water and hit the running trail. I was very inspired by these children!
All of their little bikes were ready after their run. Hubby and I stood and cheered them on.
Then we continued our morning!
I cannot even begin to describe the colors of the lake. The shades of blue and green were so spectacular. We just stopped and admired nature’s palette.
Of course, having mountains in the background only enhanced the scene.
Onward and upward we went!
We were not in any hurry. We wanted to take our time. We talked. We people watched. We nature watched. It was perfection.
What’s not to love!
I’m a sucker for waterfalls. Especially, ones that just trickle down.
The trails did not disturb nature’s placement of things.
I just love this picture. The beautiful tree standing so gracefully alone on the trail.
We had an amazing day hiking around this lake. We did work up an incredible appetite though! This evening we headed to a local biergarten that was right down the street from our hotel. We shared goulash and breaded pork. Yum!
Tomorrow I will finish up our trip with some odds and ends!
Have a fabulous Thursday!
