That day, in July: An ascent on walkways along the Myra Falls in Lower Austria. We were only able to get a couple of pictures before the weather turned against us with a violent thunderstorm...

From Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myra_Falls_(Lower_Austria)

"The Myra Falls (German: Myrafälle) are located in a ravine in the municipality of Muggendorf in the Austrian federal state of Lower Austria. The ravine has been cut by the Myrabach, a small tributary of the Piesting. The Myra, as the stream is also known, rises at the foot of the Unterberg from the Myralucke, a spring steeped in legend, that is fed by an underground lake. Although the Myra is only a few kilometres long, it used to power a large number of mills and sawmills in the Myra valley.

The actual ravine with the falls is about 600 metres long; its height difference is 70 metres. The gorge runs from north to south and is protected as a natural monument. The subsoil of the gorge is limestone. The Myrabach falls in several cascades through the gorge. At the upper and lower end the water is impounded into a small pond.

A well-developed and popular hiking trail leads through the gorge. It was built in 1885 by the Pernitz branch of the Austrian Tourist Club (Österreichischer Touristenklub), with 19 bridges and 8 ascents (opened: 9 August 1885) and looked after them since then."

Wie immer traumhafte Fotos!
So schön das dort zu sein scheint, bei #4 hat's mich gewürfelt - so ein Graffel steht in dieser schönen Natursituation steht echt rum? Wobei in Kombination mit der Fußwaschung ist das natürlich ein geniales Foto ...
