We were supposed to reach the first summit of this trip at around 6:00 AM, just in time to enjoy sunrise on the top of Jochberg. But a little inconvenience with some change ruined this plan. After I left work at 11:00 PM, we just passed by my house to pick up the equipment and left towards the small village of Jachenau in Bavaria. After 3 hours we arrived there at 3:00 AM, everything according to our plan. But then we needed some change for the ticket machine at the official parking space for hikers. My friend only got 1,60 € and I took all the change out of my wallet before I left home, in order to have it as slim and light as possible. BAD DECISION! Now we needed to look for some alternative where to leave the car. We spend almost 1 hour doing so and left a little late for the summit of Jochberg.
Even so, we enjoyed a beautiful sunrise. It was not on top as we planned, but on the way, almost getting there. When we finally arrived at the summit, it was 6:30 AM and still "golden hour". I was able to shoot some great pictures and later we continued our trip, still missing around 8 hours of hiking that day.
In total we covered 3 peaks: Jochberg with 1565 meters, Rabenkopf with 1555 meters and Benediktenwand with 1801 meters.
One thing is for sure after this trip: next time I'll take some change with me!
