A closer view of the hotel from up on the mountain. Ok: decision time. Take the easy blue trail, or continue up the red trail to Raudmelen peak? I kept going obviously. Here I am at about the halfway point. It was sunny and warm so I stripped down to the bare essentials. After the midway point the right side of the mountain just dropped off... it was a very steep slope (70 degrees or more) down to the valley below. There's still some snow even in August, and it's feeding the streams. I could hear the sound of the waterfalls of this stream even across the valley. The view up the ridge toward the peak. And loking back whence I came.
