Route 716 to Wintergasse (11 July 2017)

1136bridgeview2

Having successfully completed a 100 page photobook for our Valmalenco trip in 2015, I’ve now embarked on designing a book for our Austrian trip last year.

Allan Hartley’s Cicerone guide simply says ‘Pick up route 716 … cross the footbridge … start to climb, and he describes the third day of the Gross Glockner route as an ‘anti-climax’. This is not the first time I’ve disagreed with him.

The picture tells the story…?

Other News:

My long awaited hernia op took place this afternoon. I’m sore but back at home and able to do this, so the Austria photobook is in good hands. Hopefully there will be a bargain offer sometime for the purpose of getting it printed. Then there are two big projects – South America 2015 and Canada 2017. But another Alpine trip will intervene before we can finish those, I suspect.

Thanks Louise
I overdid the first day. Suffered quite a bit of discomfort today, but just changed the dressing and it looks ok. The staples may have been catching on something. (Ouch)
