Plots

That's what carrying tons of material to a dozen places all over the mountains was all good for: Some fancy plots.

Milky Way

Can't remember that I have ever seen a starry sky so clear. Amazing, how clean the air was at 1.700 meters, even with the relatively large town of Reutte down in the valley.

Day 3

Collecting the last GPS stations, measuring some more sliding slopes and collecting data from an alpine hut for doing some modeling and energy calculations. But first: Getting on top of our Hornbergle right before sunrise.

Solar Potential

Sun? Endless, at least for the first three days of our stay. For the rest of the year, our digital models were used to do some solar radiation analysis.

Rain

At least no need to be worried about sunburns anymore. Maybe the mountain decided to finally get rid of its last visitors, before thousands of skiers will return during winter time.
