Sadly, it is our last day in Salzburg. Our lovely host arranged for us to go out into the forest where we were able to watch a deer feeding. We saw approximately 150 deer. They are fed everyday once food becomes scarce, usually starting around December 1st. The hunters set out food as they are required to help take care of the deer during the winter, seems only fair… We hiked out through the snow to a viewing platform, where you sit quietly, as the deer come down the hillside to feed. Thankfully, we were given blankets to help keep us warm, since the cold took our breath away, we are not quite use to it.
Afterwards, we drove through the lake region, which again took our breath away, it was so beautiful. We then stopped and walked through our last Austrian Christmas Market. It was magical with lights, carolers and all the festivities. We are truly going to miss Austria, we have really loved being here!
