Traunstein Summit Cross

Today we finally made it and hiked the Traunstein! It has been on my list for a long time! Starting at around 7.30, hiking the Naturfreundesteig trail, we’ve been up at around 1pm (we are not really experienced hikers ;)), having one break. After an extended lunch break and some coffee we hiked down the (easier) trail via Mair Alm.

After all, for the last 30 minutes walking back to our car we experienced a thunderstorm and got pretty soaked. My hiking boots did not really turn out as waterproof ;). It is a wonderful hike but take into account it is one of the more dangerous mountains to climb in the area.
