Is This Narnia?

On Friday, we got up bright and early to explore the natural beauty of Austria. After eating breakfast (I had my first German egg), we headed toward Gosausee - Gosau's breathtaking lake nestled in the mountains. We spent our morning walking around this small lake, in awe of the beauty, crisp air, stillness and absolute silence - it was a great place to think and reflect.

A few of the things we did around the lake (aside from taking hundreds of pictures):
  • Stopped to drink ice cold water from a stream coming off of the mountain (left)
  • Yell ridiculous things and listen for the echo (Riiii-coooo-laaaaaa)
  • See who could throw rocks farther (below)
  • Listen to water drops using a device to amplify the volume (right)
  • Re-enacted scenes from Cliffhanger

After our morning walk (best morning walk ever), we had lunch at the cafe overlooking the lake. I enjoyed bratwurstel, sauerkraut and potatoes with a mug of hot chocolate - almost as much as I enjoyed the views of the mountains.
