Day 12

We are fascinated by a church cemetery in Salzburg where wrought iron replaces traditional headstones and every grave site is a miniature flower garden. I'm even more fascinated by a cheese-dumpling soup at a nearby dinner house.<br>
<br>
By nightfall we arrive at our campsite in Innsbruck, Austria. It is closed and under reconstruction. A nearby hotel refers us to a campground two miles away, behind a pizza parlor. The guy wants 50 euros. He knows he's the only game in town. At his counter, he has brochures for that hotel. Quid pro quo.<br>
<br>
It's not until the light of morning we realize we're nestled among snow-capped mountains.<br>

It's not until the light of morning we realize we're nestled among snow-capped mountains.
