To the Summit in Innsbruck
I had planned to go to the top of the mountain via the cable car either yesterday or today, but the weather was gray yesterday and I put my bets on today. It’s 10am, and the sun has been shining for 2 hours. Weather says rain starting at 10:00am. Now I’m at the first funicular station … let’s see if the weather holds up, for the clouds are still lingering up in the mountains, ready to strike. I left my sunglasses in the hotel–not ready to tempts fate (or more accurately, superstition).
The journey up the Nordkette in pictures:
A quick view from one of the first stops, but I didn’t want to hang out because…
Because clouds were closing in rapidly above the spaceship funicular station.
But we were soon above the clouds
And a short walk led us to a summit.
On one side I watched the clouds come
…and go over the city below
I sat staring at this panorama while tourists rushed up, took their obligatory photo, and left.
… where my picture looks like it was taken in front of a green screen backdrop.
