Social distancing with the chamois

A rather seldom photographed view on the Semmering is the overlook from the Pfefferwand on the Gamperviadukt. The trails up here are blazed by the Chamois, the local wild mountain goats. Last time I was up here I ran into one at the overlook, I think we were both as startled seeing each other. As one can see, the snow was all but gone by this point. On the climb up I managed to miss 2 freights and it was hours till the next showed up. Thankfully after the long wait I was treated to three, all with 1044s on the head end.
