One of the many mountain passes in the Alps. As you can see, the clouds were low that day. This was on the first day and our "body clocks"
were adjusted after this! What jet lag????
We were heading from Otzal, Austria to Lake Garda, Italy. Not too far up the road was a cafe at the Austrian/Italian border
with a co-ed restroom .... We're here for the experience! They had great coffee and strudel!
In the Alps to the East of Innsbruck. The walk to to bottom was easier than the hike back up. Go figure.
We were heading from Sillian to Innsbruck and went through this LONG tunnel. There was a trough with spring water coming out at
the left-hand side of the picture. This was a great place to stop and enjoy the view.
Winter Olympics were held here twice. When you see the surrounding mountains, they couldn't have picked a better place.
A little town West of Innsbruck where we spent a night.
We needed the rest before tackling the Timmelsjoch on motorcycles.
We spent several days here with a trip into Italy.
We had lunch at a cafe downtown and watched hang-gliders circling the town.
Everytime you watch sking on television they talk about Kitzbuhl. Since we were passing by we just had to stop in and play tourist.
Things are done a little different here. While we were having lunch, at an indoor restaurant, the waitress brought a bowl of water for the dog
at the table next to ours. This is something I won't see here in the U.S.
When we first drove into Austria I was ready to move here. What's not to like? The scenery was great, people friendly, and the food was teriffic!
