Because the sun came back one more time, and the afternoon was still young, I spontaneously continued my tour yesterday from the other end of the valley.
Actually, the climax was reached after a good one and a half kilometers. But before that was the sweat, scrambling up a steep snow-covered slope before a wonderful view awaited.
Down it was a sledding game 😉. There was a lot of hustle and bustle in the valley and I had the impression that all the alder trees that the beavers hadn't made it were being killed by humans.
Some lost places, an old wooden hut, a former electricity house and an old mill were on the way.
As in the morning, I trudged partly across country through deep snow. You don't need a gym.
In the end I ran out of daylight again ..... 🌛

After the sun tickled me and I still had something to do in the forest, I put my hiking boots back on and started walking. I stayed on the path to the edge of the forest, then turned into a meadow and followed a tire track.
When this ended the snow got deeper. The meadow turned into a field and walking was more difficult than before.
On the way I noticed a noticeable number of animal tracks and followed them into the forest. The path was narrow but passable. Although the tracks were a bit older I could see deer and fox tracks. The sun flashed through the trees again and again and the birds sang spring with their full throats.
Apart from the little singers I saw no animals.
Back on the way, I made good progress, changed the side of the street and enjoyed the warmth of the sun on my back.

The morning promised sun and pleasant temperatures.
And since my last tour here was a few days ago, and the urge to go outside was great enough, I remembered that a few green circles were waiting for a transformation on the GC map.
So the route was clear and the little knack was put together straight away.
I had already learned that there is always something to be admired if you pay attention. Right at the beginning a couple of white glowing herons attracted attention as they flew through the lower citizens Labertal. The path itself demanded my attention. Sometimes high snow, then mud and immediately afterwards ice sheets. So there was a change.
The way there led through the shade so that the opposite slope shone in the sun.
As I walked through a valley, the sun slowly disappeared and finally clouds came up that spat out a few raindrops.
There were some snow figures in Unterbürg - at a safe distance of course.

Actually I was tired after the morning shift, and actually I slept maybe two hours the last night. But yesterday I had taken my mouth a little too full for that, and so after a brief consultation I moved my bottom out of its comfortable position into the hiking clothes and then out of the house.
And it was worth it!
The clouds receded, finally released the flawless blue and the sun smiled all over my face.
There was also a lot to see, from strange companions, birds from southern countries, lovingly restored houses, a Santa Claus who seemed to have lost his bearings with his angel, to colorful lights that reported from last Christmas.
The sun gave its best and shone so strong that it touched my soul and the tiredness was forgotten.
As she sank between two mountains and I turned my head, the moon called back to my memory its perfection today.

Actually, I didn't have a plan, except that I wanted out.
I was woken up by the sun today, so I put my hiking boots on well before noon. This also had the advantage that everyone else waited at home for lunch for the first two hours of the tour.
As is so often the case, I did not follow a given route, but made a spontaneous decision while walking.
After yesterday's day on the couch, I longed for forest air and the dark green of the spruce trees.
After turning left and right twice, I reached the protective forest after a quarter of an hour. Even without tourist attractions there was something to discover everywhere. Here glowing mushrooms grew, there a huge spruce was bent over like a match. The freshening wind shook the ice of the past few days from the tree tops and the stones on the ground crunched under my shoes. No sooner had I left the forest than an ICE hissed by.

After the sky swirled a bit white last night and the sun peeked through the clouds, the inner sh ......... d was persuaded and went outside with me.
In the meantime, however, it was already dripping from the trees and the colors came out again.
Only the Calvary, which is 30 meters higher, still presented itself in immaculate white.
Then we went back through deserted streets ...

Actually, sun was promised, if only for two hours, but more than just a small crack in the cloud cover was not possible.
Nevertheless, I had found a nice place for a cup of coffee, which required a few meters in altitude beforehand.
No car in the parking lot for hikers and it was otherwise very quiet. The thermometer showed 5 ° C and so the round began on a wide forest path. The path rose steeply, I felt warm. Heavy tracks indicated that heavy equipment had climbed the heights in front of me.
The snow and frost of the last week had dissolved, the ground was heavy and soaked with condensation, occasional birds danced through the trees and I found clear traces of nocturnal boar activity.
When I arrived at the lookout point, I found a bench and a table. Perfect!
Until the coffee boiled, I enjoyed the panorama, the fast moving clouds and the slowly fading light.

Contrary to my expectations, the sun shone from a flawless blue sky today after the fog had evaporated.
Since snow is predicted for tomorrow, I took the opportunity and ran into the forest again without a fixed destination.
At lunchtime I was alone there again, which suited me because the last weekend was nice, but also exhausting.
Slowly the harbingers of the weather change announced and the blue gave way to a familiar gray. 🤷♂️

Yesterday I complained that I was missing the sun, and today it was shining in the pristine blue sky.
Actually, I wanted to stay at home today and chill, but then I gave the tired bones a jerk, a short message into the communication device and a short time later I was walking through the glittering splendor with laced shoes.
The bright disc warmed so strongly that it literally burst the ice from branches and hit it noisily on the cold ground. Carpets made of broken ice lay around the birch trees.
I don't really know why, but the first clouds soon came up, and when we left the forest again, the wind - which I hadn't missed until then - picked up a lot, of course from the front.
We went back between neat little houses, whose front gardens seemed to have fallen into an early hibernation.
It should also be mentioned that when the shoes were back on the shelf, the sky got its blue back 🤔🌞
