Coming from the east coast of the United States I had never seen “real” mountains before my first trip to Europe and the Bavarian Alps. These are truly majestic mountains with their soaring rocky peaks covered in snow. Quite the experience for this New England boy.
As long as you ae far enough away the snow avalanches are a sight to see. You hear them first and then they look like a river flowing down the face of the mountain when viewed from a distance.
