“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every day, and you can choose to be there for it — you can put yourself in the way of beauty.”

Citing her mother, these words were written down by US American novelist Cheryl Strayed. Her #1 bestselling memoir Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail details her 1,600-kilometer hike on the Pacific Crest Trail and tells the story of the personal struggles that compelled her to take the hike. In 2014, Nick Hornby adapted Wild for the screen, with actress Reese Witherspoon portraying Strayed in the film. In today’s blog post, the spectacular natural beauty and the epic landscapes of Tirol are in the leading role. Our mountains overflow with sunrises begging to be captured by the camera. Many postcard-worthy results are posted on Instagram – such as these eleven photographs depicting some of our country’s most photogenic places.
