ABC Wednesday - Edelweisspitze

As a continuation of yesterday post regarding my visit to the Alps in Austria, I want to show some of the photos taken from Hochalpenstrasse.
The highest point on the High Apline Road has a spectacular panorama view of more than 30 peaks above 3000 m. Find the 360gr Panoramas on the link (right sidebar) and enjoy the spectacular mountaind

E is for Edelweiss spitze 2571m

In the background you can see, from right: Johannisberg 3460m, Sonnenwelleck 3261m and Austria´s highest summit Grossglockner 3798m. To the north and on the other side of the valley from where we climbed by bus, you may see Grosses Wiesbachhorn 3564m. The panorama view east and south shows Brennkogel 3018m and Kloben 2936m. To west we have the tunnel through Hochtor 2503m and to the north Hohe Dock 3348mIf you don´t want to go back to my Tuesday post I show you Grossglockner once more

Thank you for your comment on my blog. As to your question:
"Are Indian and Thai elephants equal and called Asians, or do you mean Indian through Asian"
I (and this is only my personal opinion) would call both East Indian and Thai elephants Asian.
Will have to do further research on this.

Ja de var meget flotte disse fjellene også, men det skal vel litt til å slå våres. ;-)

Flotte bilder og fin informasjon Arne.
