....Almost at the top of the world....

 

Spot the three climbers "glued" to the slope. (On the right of the old cable-car-end-station)

 

This is a "close-up" of the people on the ridge.

Smell that air! That is clean!
Picturit: It was such a wonderful day and almost no wind, Ray. There are days that you are blown out of your underwear..... (Dutch saying)
Astrid.
doing outdoor inspections here is a specialized job, Astrid. the close up is really sharp! i think i would not have the stomach to be up there on the ridge!
Picturit: Me neither, Ayush. It was even a "two way street"....This is for the experienced and not for us. I am fine with looking down on them from the cable car....
Astrid.
Oh, so good, I would love to be walking that ridge!
Super photo's Astrid.
Picturit: When I came up here, while still in the cable-car, I thought of you and how you would LOVE this mountain to climb.... I viewed several YouTubes of people going up by foot, there are several routes. You would enjoy going up...
Thank you, Frank.
Astrid.
J'ai trop le vertige pour faire ce genre d'ascension.
Picturit: Then just stay with two feet on the ground, Martine. We all have our own "hobby" and that might not be mountaineering grin..
Astrid.
That is so wonderful!!! Love these imagesz!
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. I was thinking of Frank a lot this day.. he would love this mountain.

I don't know if I'd have the balls to walk along that ridge Astrid - it looks incredibly dangerous!

I wonder if it's the actual Austria/Germany border?
Picturit: I would not feel comfortable there either, Chris for it was coming and going on that ridge...
I was surprised what people did...
I send you a link about your question.
Astrid.
Oh my, Astrid. I never once saw this, coming or going, so lucky you. And how fun to see the scale of the people.
Picturit: I was short of eyes, Ginnie. There was so much to see and all was so suddenly.
I am glad that I just took a few pictures and later I spotted the 3 people on the slope.
This was a fun day and I am so glad that you could spend it with me.

Picturit: Thank you, Philine. It is one beautiful mountain and worth the money going up...
More pictures to come.
Astrid.
Impressionnant !!
Picturit: Thank you, Claudine. There was so much to see. And we were so impressed with the view too.

Belles prises
JP
Picturit: Thank you, JP. That was quite the experience.
Astrid.
Makes you wonder how they build things like this...how do they get the stuff up there?
Picturit: Bill, that to me is a total mind-blowing thing.
Of course now they have helicopters, but back then.... everything had to be towed up.. I wonder if they had a guy going up, he made some installation with a strong cable and a big hook.... and then things were pulled up??.
Mind blowing.....

I can't do ridge walking these days sad The building of the cable car stations are an incredible feat in their own right.
Picturit: I am sorry to hear that that is passed time, Alan.. sad
The whole station was just amazing it is some major engineering.

What a superb photograph Astrid. The climbers look so small against the massive mountain.
Picturit: Thank you, Chad. This was a highlight of the vacation, to be on top of that mountain and have that wonderful weather.

een prachtige foto van dit bijzondere uitzicht Astrid...

of hoe klein de mens ten opzichte van de natuur is..

alhoewel ook daarboven kennen ze je naam

prettige dag gewenst
Picturit: Ik heb maar aandelen gekocht in de kabelbaan, €48 een retourtje.... prima investering denk ik.
Je hebt gelijk, wij zijn maar kleine mieren wat dat betreft. Ik heb bewondering voor de klimmers, een mooie hobby alleen ik ken mijn grenzen...
Nog een fijne avond.
Astrid.
Goodness knows how they fing the courage, and skill, to climb in place like that. One does wonder how they managed to build that place.
Picturit: Brian, that is always in my mind when I see such a great job of engineering. How is it possible. How do they get that up there???
Astrid.
Wij zijn nog met die oude naar boven gegaan, net z`n adelaarsnest hè ?
Mooi die poppetjes zo langs de bergrand...brrr...
Picturit: Ja, heel erg mooi en erg imposant, Marjolein. Geen spijt dat we dit gedaan hebben. Ik kreeg niet genoeg van het uitzicht. Geweldig.
Astrid.
You are scaring the heck out of me this week, Girl!
Picturit: sad Oh my and the series is not doen yet, Mary. Do I need to send you a life-saver-line (or something) that you can hook to your table???
I will warn you when the series comes to an end....

OMG....WHERE do you stand to get these shots!! Yikes. Glad you are ok.
Picturit: HA, in the cable car going higher.... we are just before the station.
Astrid.
What a commanding viewpoint! The people give a real sense of just how grand this landscape is! Friendship
Picturit: Don't you just love it. This is just another world to me, Ruthie. We ahd such a great day going up.
Astrid.
i spotted all three of them Astrid... one of them is much higher up the mountain than the other two... these are very crisp images....petersmile
Spectacular images, Astrid! The people really are like ants on this vast landscape......... smile
