Take A Hike

Take a hike with us!  The past few days we have been wandering the area near Garmisch and we also drove part of the Alpine Road.  We stayed by a lake one night and a river the other.  It rained all day yesterday and last night but we noticed that does not stop the Germans from taking their walks.  It really feels pretty good to walk in the rain and is sure nice to sleep to.

DSC_1678  The office was closed for a two hour lunch at  this camping place near Krun so during that time we walked a gravel track that took us closer to the mountains.  By the time we finished we decided to move on and see more of the area. 

  The clouds in front of the mountains were coming and going.



No way does this photo come close to showing how majestic this  mountain appears. You have to go there!



 Cowbells could be heard near this fence.




The herd came running towards us making a symphony with their bells.  They are so cute!




 You can’t tell by these pictures but the meadows are full of yellow and purple wildflowers. 




  And now we are walking back to Tulip.

I mentioned in my last post that we wanted to leave for Italy but after seeing the doctor Thursday (who sent me straight from his office to a specialist) we can’t leave until another appointment on Monday. The specialist says I have pleurisy in my left lung and also pericarditis, both of which were probably caused by a virus.  I don’t have a serious case of either one and in fact am feeling a lot better today.  I was able to walk quite a ways uphill for a change.


  1. I opened that 3rd picture up big to see if I could spot Julie Andrews singing…the hills are alive!!! Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! If you've got to be “stuck” somewhere sick, wow, what a place…but do hope you feel better soon so you can explore further.


  2. Now that you mention it, in the future if Steve or I has to see a doctor and then hang around we will swiftly drive to a very nice area! And Ruth, I was just thinking yesterday how lucky the animals are to graze in these beautiful meadows rather than scrounge for stubbles of growth out in the western U.S.


  3. Absolutely beautiful — all of it from all of your posts. Keep it coming. Hope you get some good medical relief from your illness very soon Evelyn.
