Yesterday we walked in the beautiful Karwendal Nature Park on the hottest day of the year I heard. It was not an easy uphill walk in the heat to the Pleisenhutte, which was built at the end of WW2 by a man who had been in active service and just wanted to get away from the world. The views from up there were incredible! We met a kindred spirit towards the top and spent nearly two hours talking before we needed to get back down to get the train back to Seefeld. The son of the builder now deceased and his wife run the business which provides lovely food and refreshment and simple accommodation for those who want to do the higher paths the following day. There were quite a few cyclists there also. When we reached the start of the walk and a bar for drinks at 6pm we were so hot and tired we just had time for a beer before continuing to the bahnhof. We got back to the hotel at 7pm and when we arrived for dinner most of the guests were eating outside as it was still very warm and pleasant.
Today it feels even warmer and we’re having a relaxing day, too hot for much walking so it’s the shade we prefer for now.
