Ascent of the Untersberg

The final trip on our Salzburger Cards, as the last seconds of our 72 hour limit expired, was the cable-car ride up the Untersberg, the bigger mountain that overlooks the valley and city
The Untersberg, from Hellbrunn gardens,
the day before

Cable-car up to nearly the top

View at the top: total white-out, cold, raining, windy; I was
going to walk to the summit for a day-hike, but quickly
came to my senses

From the station at the top: cables descending into the void

The Untersberg, from Salzburg outskirts, a few days later
