On The Road – way2blue – SÜDTIROL – Hiking Ochsenboden + Kleiner Gitsch in October 2/2

These photos are from the second half of a hike in Sudtirol.  (Before our visit to Südsteiermark, we spent time in the Zillertal Alps of Südtirol, near the village of Meransen/Maranza.  The town has a gondola up to ski runs on Gitschberg [8230 ft] which was still running in late October.  We would take the gondola up to Nesselhütte [6915 ft] to hike up, down & around a web of trails with stops at Nesselhütte for glühwein / beer.  Great autumn colors as the larch foliage had turned yellow.  A bit taxing at first given my home is closer to 600 ft.)
