So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria, God and life, teaching and gardening plus the occasional cow

Hobbits in Lungau?

IMG_2723Up in the hill in Geiger wald, just across the valley from us, there are many little paths to wander on. Just off one of the tracks I found these strange things built into the side of the hill.IMG_2725Can’t think what they are for. Hiding gunpowder for blasting?  They’re not wells or water sources as the streams are further along the path.IMG_2719Then I got it. Ancient hobbit holes, a smaller Austrian race (due to the Lungau cold).IMG_2721They moved away (also due to to the cold) and these entrances are all that’s left, sealed up for eternity!IMG_2718
