Keeping Cool

For all of you suffering through the Texas summer heat, here's an Austrian spring image to keep you cool. Although, I could just as easily have posted a picture of our summer because it's been more like spring this year - lots of rain and low temps. Makes you want to get out of town, doesn't it?
This is the view from our balcony. The snowcapped mountain in the background is called the Three Sisters.

That is a beautiful view! :)

I wish I had seen this when we were in Texas last month. I do believe this beautiful sight would have made the temp seem cooler by at least 10 degrees...and that would have made it into the bearable 90s!

HG - the view is beautiful as long as there's no rain or fog (which we actually have quite a bit of).

JAS - I've heard that this has been an even hotter summer than usual in Texas this year. That's one reason why I'm coming for a visit in December instead!
