Hans I am very impressed with the variation of the orchids as well as of there quality.  8)
It was a great trip for me. ;D
How long did the trip take to walk? Did You see a lot of each or was it just a few of each?
Kind regards

Joakim, I had to walk 2,5 hours and there are many orchids of most orchids (from Bad Goisern or Gosau up to the mountain). Coeloclossum viride and Pseudorchis albida are not so often seen.
There are many Nigritella rhellicani, Gymnadenia conopsea (white forms, too), Epipactis atrorubens, palustris (no photo), helleborine, Dactylorhiza fuchsii, Orchis ustulata, some hybrids,...and many alpine plants like Primula auricula, clusiana, Campanula barbata, Lilium martagon, different Campanulas, Gentiana clusii, verna, pannonica and other Gentianas (see photo),......
