A walk in the Wald ....

Just returned from a couple of hours walking in the forest surrounding us here in the Taunus. Of course you can't walk very far without looking onto a town or village, they are pretty much in every valley and on some of the slopes, and they are picture postcard pretty. The forest itself is a mixture of deciduous and conifer, with beech and birch thriving amongst the conifers.

Its a beautiful sunny day here, though the temperatures are hoverig just below 0*C, it was a bracing -2*C when we set out and has warmed up a little as the day has progressed. With clear skies and frost on the ground though, once the sun is down it will fall swiftly again to the predicted -5*C overnight.

Well, now its time for a nice warm cup of coffee and some Schtollen and other goodies. Then a game of Keltis to keep us all amused until supper. Life doesn't get much better .......

Sounds like the sort of walk that deserves some photos?
