(There's also a larger version of this image.)
        We're standing in the village of Waldele, between Imst and Roppen, looking west into a gorge through which the Inn River passes. To the left of the Inn in this view is Austria's major east-west railway from Innsbruck to Zurich - note that it only consists of one set of tracks in this narrow passage, whereas it consists of two sets of tracks virtually everywhere to the east and to much of the west. The only other thoroughfare through the gorge is the Inntalradwanderweg, the Inn Valley Bike Path, which is visible to the left of the railway.

How about a sidetrip to see a train going through this canyon, and then on to a view in the canyon itself? Those pages will give you a link to resume the full trip with next image in the regular full series.
