Martelltal, 12/2005

On two days that were below 20C we decided not to ski and went on hikes in the forest in Martelltal.

This took us past the church of pilgrimage - Wallfahrtskirche - "Unsere Liebe Frau im Wald" or Maria Schmelz.  It is an unbelievably beautiful little chapel out in the middle of nowhere.  It was built in 1711 by Count Hendl for his pages and still a functioning place of worship today.
