Dirt Road Rush Hour – Elk Migration


Less than a mile from home on the dirt road passing the meadow I encountered a traffic jam. Elk migration is fun to watch, even when you’ve seen them for many days in a row.

Melk Abbey Austria

Another throwback from a 2015 trip. Overlooking the Danube, this was Home to Benedictine monks for around 1000 years.

Definitely worth visiting for the architecture and amazing views of the village below alone.
