My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

This was the first thing I saw when I arrived in St. Gilgen, on lake Wolfgang in the Austrian region of Salzkammergut. It is a charming small town nestled between the Dachstein Alps. This old cable car brought tourists and skiers to the peaks with a magnificent view over seven different alpine lakes in the region. Unfortunately the weather limited visibility, and the charge to use the cable car was a little steep, so I decided to give it a miss. It did give a mysterious atmosphere to the place, and the fog cleared momentarily to catch a glimpse of the sunny mountains, but I doubt the skis attached to that gondola have seen much snow up there that day.
