View facing North from photographers position. Camera - Olympus XA, Ektachrome.

Zittelhaus is run like the International Space Station. Everything that can be recycled is recycled, organic waste is biodigested to provide natural gas, and there is extensive use of solar PV. Supply is by helicopter. Its a serious days slog up from Heiligenblut. Almost killed me.
