View on The Halstatt See
::: View on The Halstatt See :::

Our base in the first part of Holidays was Obertraun, small village at The Halstatt See lake among giant mountains. We had been doing trips and hikes from this village.
First it was The Salt mines in Halstatt.We weren't inside, because it was the only tourist attraction where dogs were prohibited, but we made good walk up to the top :-)

Martina and Garp   Martina and Garp
::: Martina and Garp in Halstatt :::

Second trip it was visit of Eishöhle, Mammuthöhle a 5 fingers, that ar tourist attraction in Dachstein near Obertraun. We went also by cable car and because weather was very hot also in altitude 2000 m Garp had been taking rest in every moment as soon as it was possible.

Next day we moved to Piesendorf, small village near Kaprun, to the perfect guesthouse Klawun with excellent home cooking. First we visited the mountain pass Sigmund-Thun Klamm with waterfalls and The Klamm See lake.

Next goal of our holidays was The Wildpark Ferleiten, the zoo at the road from Kaprun to Grossglockner, the highest mountain of Austria. There are only animals living in surrounding in The Wildpark and when you walk among deers and roe deeers you don't feel like in the zoo.

The hardest trip was planned at the last day. We drive to The Haus Kesselfall, alttitude 1060 m. The hike was 3 km long with elevation 700 m. Our goal was hydraulic structure The Mooserboden with power stations "Tauernkraftwerke Glockner-Kaprun". It was very strenuous trip because of very hot weather and big hill :-D

hunting Garp

We took part in first coursing race this year and had really great time with our friends.
Bitches were better than dogs again and we could only applaud to the 3rd Aerin and to winner Sheeva.

Sheeva is killing and garp is braking

At the end our ridgebacks showed hunting in the pack of 6 dogs!!! Namely: Garp, Gregory, Zippy, Spice, Aerin and Sheeva. It was spectacular to see these dogs hunting without collars, jerseys and muzzles. These things our dogs don't need!!!
