Walchensee

Having listened to the rain all night we have big reservations about the next day's activities come wakey wakey time


No need to worry as the sun comes out and blesses our 5km ride to Walchensee
This was dodgy to say the least as we were kitted out in walking attire and my bike has MTB pedals!
The destination was the Herzogstand range of mountains that have ski lifts and offer stunning views away to the Alps



I was expecting a very twitchy ride up the cable car with Nina clinging on to me again but no….just very fast and smooth





What a view this was looking down in to the village



The 'Holy Grail' atop Herzogstand






Nice work if you can get it



Tribute to König Ludwig 


Our own personal homage at the watering hole 


Prost!



Great view done 3 ways...





Are you watching Hank!




Name that bird….




On a good day we'd have done the ridge walk but we were aching from the last few days and whimped out


Much more civilised than the tin cans we were in last autumn in the Dolomites




Take time to read the history of the lake Here, its fascinating!
