Day 126: Hiking to the Terminator's Thal

Lying in the Grass, the Fields of Austria

Katie and I spent the day hiking in the northern hills around Graz. We hiked up the hill to the castle, snuck (unnecessarily) up the tower, and had a picnic (Katie had made the best homemade buns-Homemaker award!). It was a wonderful day full of conversation. Abroad, though I spent a large amount of time with americans, I rarely have people who understand most of my life experience. Katie does.

We kept hiking through the hills, and decided to follow the yellow signs in the direction of the lake. After some confusion about which direction we should be headed, and running into some gunfire (sounded close, no idea where the shooter was), we found our way into the open fields of Thal, the home of Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. We took the opportunity to lay in the grass, of course.

Thal is smaller than Salol. I think that they legitimately have a larger horse population than human population. Asked a lady for directions, petted and fed horses, and saw the lake for one minute before catching the bus back.
