Photo #1 from Ottobrunn, Germany by Freistaat made on 2019-02-07 22:27 for Sola

I’m slowly falling in love with the Achensee region. Today I climbed Mount Hochplatte (1814 m). A great summit with a wonderful view on a snow paradise.

Once more I packed my snowshoes and headed for the Alps very early in the morning. When I began my climb the sun was still hiding behind the rocks.

But soon it began to shine, leaving me sweating while I crossed the icy, snow covered slopes.

When I came around a corner I saw a young man in despair. He was a ski tourer, but only with one ski left. He lost the other one in the deep powder snow. I helped him looking for it. After some minutes we spotted the missing ski. I digged it out. The guy was so glad. He happily continued his ride.

And I went on uphill. It was hard. There was no track for snowshoe hikers. So I built it in the deep snow. On this pic you see the direct way to the summit. It was way too steep to climb it with snowshoes. But I went down there on my way back.

Finally I reached the summit cross.

And I wasn’t alone up there. Just about 25 meters away there was a chamois feeding on the bark of a tree. Can you recognize it in the middle of the photo?

The panorama was just amazing. The two peaks in the middle are Seekarspitze (2053 m) and Seebergspitze (2085 m). I climbed them in summer 2017 (https://sola.ai/travel-the-world/holiday-but-my-wife-sadly-has-to-work-all-summer-long-so-i-m-1156566278?r=freistaat).

On the other side of the valley I could see Mount Stuhljöchl (2157 m) that I had climbed just two weeks ago (https://sola.ai/travel-the-world/i-cant-remember-when-we-ever-had-so-much-snow-in-the-alps-and-NGNkOWI?r=freistaat).

On my way down I met dozens of other snowshoe hikers. They could easily use my freshly prepared track 😉

Wonderful! I had to Google the Chamois, I didn't think I knew them, and then I realized that I did, just completely forgot. I see in some of your pictures the sky was full of chemtrails, it gives the pictures that extra touch. How much of a drive you have to do to reach these places?

Chamois are very common in the Alps. I see some of them on almost every tour. But this one was closer than usual. I once made a card about the special meaning of those animals for traditional Bavarian clothing: https://sola.ai/travel-the-world/bavarian-story-60-it-s-a-common-misconception-that-bavarians-1266256392?r=freistaat

That’s the secret about chemtrails: They induce an urge in innocent people to climb mountains 😉

The pelican face makes me happy as usual. Still, a duck face would be nice for a change.

Another summit cross. In Japan they usually have a bell.
