Recover after avalanche

Avalanche

Some of you will already know. 26 November a group of 10 persons inclusive me were hiking in Obergurgl. We were hiking in Verwalltal in 20 degrees terrain, then 800 meter above us an avalanche came down and 4 of us inclusive me were taken by the avalanche. (Maybe I will write later more about details). My friend and college Bas Elhorst saved my life. I broke 5 ribs, shoulder blade, a few spine lateral protrusions and one lung was empty, I had 28 degrees.

Recovering

After two weeks in the hospital I could go home. Now I’m almost healthy as I use to be, here some photos from my first days back in the mountain.
