Photographer's Note

This is a typical Maisäss in an altitude of about 1500 metres high above the village Gaschurn in the Austrian Montafon valley (Vorarlberg). "Maisäss" encloses the words "May" and "to sit" - the place where one sits in May before cattle can be driven up to the mountain pasture, the Alm. This depends from snow conditions up there but usually at the end of May or the beginning of June cattle is driven up there.

My photo shows the Maisäss "Lifinar" with Garnera valley - with Garneraspitze (2883 m) at its end. The Alm is situated up there at the end of the valley.
This is a wonderful region for lonesome hikes - for hours and hours (please see map view right hand).
