Another day was spent walking up to the village of Finkenberg, quiet and refined compared with Mayrhofen but with building works.

Geranium pheum was every where here, except that it was rather pale...G silvaticum was also around so pehaps it had a hybrid

Adjacent is an area called the Glocke, geologically special and botanically intact since the Ice Age, according to the guide books

Birds nest orchid was the only flower I found though the beech trees were fine and the lindens were special. The whole area is cut by deep ravines where vegetation is unlikely to have been affected by man.

Walking towards Brandberg east of Mayhofen along the road Saxifraga paniculata with rather long leaves

My conclusion is that Mayrhofen has great possibilities providing the transport to surrounding areas is running....my excursions used almost no transport so were rather limited.
