Munich, October 2009

Another extended weekend. I go to Munich to visit a friend of mine and his family. I was promised a day in the mountains. I expected to see some fall colors and have some nice views from mountain tops. And and I got a wonderful day in great weather with some little kids hiking around in marvelous scenery.

The morning starts promising. Sun and some fall colors in a Munich suburb.
We go to Bad Kohlgrub to get on top of the Hörnle, a little Mountain with three peeks ("Vorderes Hörnle", "Mittleres Hörnle" und "Hinteres Hörnle"). The highest one is "Hinteres Hörnle" at 1548 m (4640 ft).
We go with a chair lift to our starting point. Patrick takes care of the little one, 2 year old Amelie

Locals prepare for a big fire next year in September. The wood needs to dry for a year.
