I’m so glad to run this submission, it’s been far too long. I had planned to run this last Friday, of course, but screwed up the Thursday post time and so that then became Friday.
So, welcome one and all to Friday and another wonderful post from otmar!
fyi the mobile editor sucks and should be executed. Sorry for the confusion folks
learning is tough.
Is this thing on?
The last weekend in October, the kids were both away on a weekend sporting event and so my wife and I decided to visits friends in Zell am See. Zell is the capital city of the Pinzgau, one of the five provinces that make up Salzburg.
We were pretty lucky with the weather. There was some fog in the morning, but that lifted while we were walking a nice path on the mountainside with their dogs (two Corgis, Bilbo and Dwalin). Arriving back at the cars, we could see Kaprun castle.
The high mountains in the background is the “Steinernes Meer”, part of the northern limestone alps.
Behind us, in the Kaprun valley hosts one of Austria’s most significant hydro energy infrastructure: a set of dams that can store electric energy by moving water between the artificial lakes. See https://www.verbund.com/en-at/about-verbund/power-plants/our-power-plants/kaprun-oberstufe-limberg-2
