I hiked the Kölnbreinspitze (3000m.) to go snowboarding a bit. It is cold in Austria and snowing in the mountains.
The last 60 meters where very steep, two ‘Lammergeier’ circling above my head. In the moment I arrived the top I it went fogy and I saw max 5 meters. My hands where almost frozen because I didn’t brouht gloves. But it was worth to hike, thanks Mountain Hardwear for the super good quality down jacket, Ghost Whisperer and a new bag pack.
These ‘Lammergeiers’ (see pictures) births are very seldom, they die off in Europe because people thought they kill lambs and even kids so they shoot them all. They recultivate them in the Swiss Mountains. Now I saw them in South Austria. They get 285 cm wide, they eat bones and break them by throwing them on stones. They are mostly brown /yellow because they paint themselves with clay like Indians do 😉
