The Sparkling Samina, Austria, 5-2015

Mountains, cascading waterfalls, and the fresh green of spring greeted us as we strolled up the path along the Samina River thoroughly enjoying the alpine spring. Austria is a hikers paradise and almost every week when the weather warms up Franz and I are off exploring the numerous valleys of our region and finding treasures that we had not found the previous year. This past weekend we sought out a hike along the Saminabach a fast flowing river that runs down the Samina Valley that straddles the border to Liechtenstein. The river is around 17 km long and it meets up on the valley floor with the Ill River. My skinny legs look forward to a summer filled with leisurely treks. Happy trails to you!
