Alpine Ibex on the Hohe Wand mountain in eastern Austria

Alpine Ibex in Hohe Wand Nature Park ...Austria

The Hohe Wand is a mountain ridge in Lower Austria and is part of the Gutenstein Alps. The Hohe Wand lies west of Steinfeld in the Vienna Basin.
It derives its name, which means "High Wall" from the steep crags on its south and southeast side. The high plateau is about 3,714 feet and stretches from the area of the Plackles in the southwest to the so-called Wandeck in the northeast.
The Hohe Wand Nature Park is the home of the Alpine Ibex. They roam freely and easily climb the steep sides of the mountain plateau. The Ibex are wild but are accustomed to visitors.
