2023 06 14 alpe adria trail day 7.
Quarter to seven we were on trail after breakfast with week home broed coffee and some bread and cheese.
We headed further north towards Alexander Hut and had to clime another 200 m of elevation to reach the pass. At Millstaetter hut we had our second breakfast ans saw a beautiful mule and two donkeys. The sky finally cleared up as we sat, before we were walking mostly in the clouds. Lots of fencing to open since only pedestrians where permitted up here and the gates were accordingly to small for the horses. After more than half a dozen gates we decided we had enough and started walking down the gravel road which added unforseen 8 km to our trail. We finally reached the wide valley of Mittersil again and now had to cross the interstate and the river Lieser and riding up to Huehnerberg (chickenmountain) to the restaurant Kohlberg, where we would be getting a meal and our first beer of the day. They have a room for us and we can fence in the horses on their property.
I'll be sleeping outside with the horses but it sure is great to get a shower after a hot day of walking. 45 km.
