The long delayed third part of our spring trip writeup - South Tyrol and Tyrol

Well, this third and last part of the writeup of my spring trip around Austria with family and friends got a bit delayed. Between family, work and many other projects it got lost somehow and I was finally reminded about it last week when I went through some photos on my computer. I made some of my favorite shots during the last couple days of said trip, so I thought it would be a bummer not to put them on the blog. So here they are!

After Starting the trip in the eastern alps then moving south to Slovenia and west to eastern Tyrol we ended the trip with a couple days in South Tyrol and in the Ötztal back in Austria.

The Dolomites are some of the most beautiful mountains I've ever visited - only downside are the hordes of people...

Jim Janney enjoys the Reinbach-falls, little low, but still fun

Daniel Brasuell on the same; sadly he doesn't know how to run waterfalls and hurt his back.

The big waterfalls of the Reinbach are a sight to see. Definitely worth the little hike.

After some days in the Ötztal and a little detour through Germany Reiner brought Daniel and Jim to Munich so they could catch their flights home. The trip came to an end for all of us, but to put some icing on the cake Reiner and I met up again in Schladming for another lap on Untertalbach at a very juicy level. Great way to end the trip!

Hannah and the kids enjoy a beautiful evening... Love.
