      Hi, Timo. I certainly couldn’t be fussy with clouds hanging and sticking around in the valleys below. The day before and after were cloudy, so I chose wisely when I went up to the summit on that day. I’m fortunate I got to see a phenomenal panorama! Thanks for your kind comment!

    Beautiful pictures – though it looks freezing! And I love the labels, because otherwise I would have no idea what I was looking at.

      Thanks, Jess. Yes, it was cold up top. The temperature in the valley below was +5C (40F), but on the summit, the air temperature was -12C (+10F). With 17 km/h (11 mph) winds, the effective windchill was -20C (-4F). Brrrrr. As for the labeling, finding and ensuring labels are correct isn’t always easy, but I also like knowing at what I’m looking. Thanks for reading and for your kind comment! 🙂

      Hi and thanks, Adelina. It took some time to get all the information and pieces together, but it was a lot of fun to do, also appealing to the details-oriented scientist in me. 😉 Thanks again for reading and for your kind comment!

      Hi and thanks, Sarah-Jane. For my ascent to Zugspitze, I thought I was prepared for the cold air. Not only did I “luck” out with clear skies, but I got a true alpine setting, complete with near -20C windchill. ‘BRRRR’ was right. The mountain just had their first real “dump” of the early season which explains why there was no one skiing on the glacier. Thanks again for reading and for your kind comment!
