Traunstein

Oberösterreich, Austria

"Traunstein is the highest mountain (1691 m) on the east bank of lake Traunsee. Because of
its almost vertical walls ending directly in the lake and its secluded, advanced position,
Traunstein looks like a boulder in the landscape. Its silhouette is visible from a great
distance. Therefore it is often called a guardian of the Salzkammergut." --Ingrid

Thanks to Ingrid for phooning (and for the photo idea).
