River valley

Going on with the Alpine hike, after sleeping in Wimbachklamm Hutte the original plan was and climbing Watzmann through the South traverse, but that is a dangerous route with many via ferrata sections, and with my knee injury I decided not to risk it, so while some of my partners went uphill I took a detour skirting around the mountain (following down the dry river) and then climbed all the way up to Watzmann Haus from the North side. Today’s picture was taken very close to the end of the valley, before starting the ascend (from 700 to 1900 meters).

Dry river

 

The dry river valley in front of Wimbrachklamm Hütte. The Watzmann traverse starts not far from here. I know this is lately getting too much about cheesy landscapes, just a few more days until I am done with the Alps and I will move on to more interesting stuff, I promise!
