Approaching the Austrian-German border during a thaw

This picture captures a small farm and woodlot as I climbed towards the Austrian-German border, not far from Salzburg. The essence of traveling sustainably is simplicity-- a pair of good hiking shoes and a packed sandwich are all that is required to take in natural beauty. In the Alps, an area overrun with tourism in development, sometimes the best moments are unplanned and off the beaten path.
