Thank you... Ich danke Dir, dass ich durch Deine Augen die Schönheit meiner Heimat wieder neu entdecken darf! Ich wusste immer schon, dass dies hier ein besonders schöner Flecken Erde ist, bin aber durch die Gewohnheit blind für das Detail geworden! (Stichwort: Alpenglühen!) Dein Blick des Entdeckers hat auch in mir neue, - alte (?), Perspektiven wachgerufen! Danke

The Zirbitzkogel, at 2,396 m (AA), is the highest point of the Seetal Alps in Austria. It lies south of the Upper Mur valley in the Styria near its border with Carinthia. The Lavant, a left tributary of the Drau, has its source on the southern slopes of the mountain.
Its name is not derived, as popularly supposed, from the Swiss pine trees (known in German as Zirben) that dominate the woods in places, but from the Slovenian word zirbiza, that can be translated as "red mountain pasture", which is a reference to the red-petalled alpenrose (Rhododendron ferrugineum) that is common hereabouts. In the local region this rhododendron plant is also known as Almrausch ("alp delirium"), perhaps an indication of the toxicity of the plants. (Source: wikipedia)
