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.

  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.
