Second day of our trip through the Alps started really early without any breakfast at 4 am. It was dark, cold and frightening quiet when we started to go further up 500 m from the Enzianhütte to the Rappensee.

We nearly ran all the way up cause we wanted to reach the top of the mountain before sunrise.

As you can see, the way up was dark and foggy – and wet as well but we managed it to reach the mountain top in total darkness and had an awesome sunrise over the clouds.

It was beginning of August, but it was damn cold – around 5 degrees above zero what kept us walking around…

As the fog drifted away, we began to see the Rappenseehütte with its beautiful mountains in the background.

Also an amazing view over the Rappensee. We started last year already with a light weight tent and some other outdoor stuuff to camp over here – but at the end there was no way cause of the bad weather conditions.

The plan for next year is again to sleep here for the Perseiden – let’s have a look like the weather will be…

Also very nice and colorful flowers in the mountains – you’ll find also a lot of animals living over there.
