<i>This is a marmot family. In the background you can see the Pasterze Glacier. The Pasterze is the longest glacier in Austria and is situated underneth the Großglockner, the highest mountain in Austria (3798m). And everything in the amazing national park Hohe Tauern.
I made a walk up there in the summer 2008. Not to the peak ;-). In the valley is a wonderful path where you get to the glacier.
I was shocked when I arrieved there. The last time I visited it in 1995 and it lost a massive amount of ground. All because of the greenhouse effect. And it becomes faster and faster (there are signs where you can see the condition from 1985 up to now).

    very cool shot Manuel ~ never seen a Marmot before ~ or this glacier ~ I bet it was a beautiful hike…I have friends who live in Alaska and hear about the degradation there too and it saddens/scares me to hear these first hand reports who experience the changes your accounting here ~ xx

  • Thanks. If they were not that shy I would have got a bigger shot from them. They are cute. It’s frightening, it happens all over the world. And some people don’t want to see it.
