Photographer's Note

Penkensee, a small lake/reservoir atop the mountain near Penkenjochhaus (2095 m) in the Penken Alps. It overlooks the Zillertal Alps on the other side. Taken from a high altitude trail from Penkenalm to Lanersbach. It was autumn but there was snow at this level. Don’t know if it snows in autumn at this height but the snow looks & feels soft & fresh to me. The Tuxal Tal, which is not far from here, is well developed for summer as well as winter skiing. Weather wasn't too good for hiking as you can see from the clouds. It rained intermittently all the way but not too heavy and still allowed some photography. Had to constantly wipe away water droplets & moistures from the camera filter. For more pictures of what can be seen from this trail click here. Will add more photos to the group.

Spanning the Austrian–Italian border, the Zillertal embraces stunning green valleys headed by scores of shapely peaks of rock and snow. The village of Mayrhofen is a good location to base yourself for day hikes in the Zillertall Alps.
