8 Miles

We're not certain, but we figure that we hiked about 8 miles through the Wienerwald this past weekend.  No, I take that back.  I don't think you can call what we did "a hike."  After all, old ladies with old lady shoes were right on our heels almost the entire way. 

Nevertheless, it was an enjoyable "long, and at times, steep walk."  Along the trails from Mödling to the Anninger Schutzhaus and back, we witnessed the beginnings of what promises to be a very beautiful fall here in Austria.

Wir hätten gern einen Apfelstrudel und zwei Melange, bitte!

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

We chose the one on the right.

I'm assuming that was the one less traveled?

It looks delectable there. I wish I could be there to let old ladies in old lady shoes pass me too.

P.S. I love that giant yellow leaf you found.

So beautiful. AND the comment about the little old ladies... That's what I feel when these 70 year olds whip by me on my trike. (of course I am not as far off from that ages,as you are) :)
The scenery (Of Fall) in the woods is so beautiful. Remind you a bit of East Tenn? Glad you had a great weekend. Love to you both.
