So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria; God, life and a small black dog

The Diktler hütte and secrets in the woods.

Last week we went back to the Diktlerhütte, our favourite hut in Lungau to see what had happened. In the spring we’d seen major building work going on and feared it was turning into another gastro hut like Ludlalm.

Joy! Even Swingle was pleased. They’ve just put new storage, a new cooker, heater in the main room, they’ve not even changed the menu card or the pongy bogs! Same staff! Same menu, so we had a wonderful roast and walked along the Cross country ski path back to the car.

We’d parked in the new carpark, and I suddenly saw this old hut through the trees.

Its even got trees growing out the roof! Its next to a huge barn. Wonder what it was used for?

The house over the road had the biggest icicles I’ve seen in Lungau!

Not exceptional, we get loads of icicles here, but just liked the contrast with the colour of the rocks.
