Autumn is the most beautiful season for hiking in my opinion.
The wide range of colours nature uses to paint its forests at this time of the year is simply amazing.
Spending a whole day outdoors, walking along small, idyllic paths and enjoying the last warm rays of the sun, clears your mind for the things which are really important in life.
On a hike through the so called `Hagengebirge´ here in Austria we came across this idyllic, hidden place.
It used to be a small mountain lake but it looks like it has completely dried up over this year’s unusually hot summer…
It’s nearly December now but the weather resembles more the sunny days of September!
Going on a hiking tour (probably the last one for the season) I took some pictures of the beautiful countryside.
The clear blue lake is called ‘Fuschlsee’ and is known for its drinking water quality!
One of my favourite places is this beautiful mountain lake not far away from my home town, called “Yew Lake”.
I took some pictures walking around the lake and then I hiked to the top of a a nearby mountain where I found this nice quote on a stone.
It says: Not the mind but the heart thinks up its way…
Sometimes I find it hard to believe how beautiful nature is.
The nuances of green and brown in the autumn forests, the beauty of the sun shining through the leaves, the gurgling of the small creeks and ponds…
You just have to take a walk and watch this amazing spectacle!
