    After I went to Stühlingen by train and bus yesterday (due to the current situation hardly any travelers)
    I started the tour today with the sun shining brightly.
    I had many memories, I went the way a few years ago. Then I had hiked the E1. I always wanted to do the entire Schluchtensteig, and now I'm there😃
    First you hike flat, wide valley until you reach the Sauschwänzlebahn. Of course, she didn't drive either.
    The Wutachflühen are a highlight. You walk on narrow stairs, mossy stones, steep rocks, lots of shade and the sound of the Wutach many meters below me, the red kites above me - a dream !!!
    Absolutely suitable footwear and sticks
    Then the landscape continues, the vertical meters make it difficult to create the view to Switzerland to the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau !!!! (Another highlight for me)
    Unfortunately, I took the wrong path on Ottilienhöhe, so I couldn't get over the large Buchberg.

    So, I had already written and finished everything, but in
    unfortunately there is such a gorge
    no! Connections to the outside world😁
    Through the wild Wutach Gorge with its scenic and geological peculiarities it went between vertical rock walls over roots and mossy stones.
    I particularly noticed the Tibet house. A pilgrim gives cold drinks and fruit free of charge or for a donation. He brings the donation money there himself. 🙏
    In various places you could see beautiful waterfalls and fill up your bottle.
    The gorge itself is very narrow, slippery and currently difficult to walk from Corona.
    Some sections are secured by a rope and reach the Schattenmühle after a hard, sunny day.

    The 3rd stage started again with sunshine. First steep climb, only to hear the Wutach, not to see. Unfortunately, part of the way was blocked, but the route continued. Even the weather was no longer cooperative. Thunderstorms, rain, slippery narrow paths. But the sun kept coming. In Lenzkirch a cup of coffee and cake, and up the mountain. Although the waitress wanted to drive me because of the bad weather. I thought about it because others wanted to take the bus, but you know "never give up"I made a nice tout, now a great inn that will take care of your feet until tomorrow

    When it rained it went this morning
     first uphill to Bildstein, because of the good distant view ... seen Schluchsee
    😄, then down to Schluchsee, the largest Black Forest lake. Many small farms, pure loneliness. Through heathland with rain still to the Windberg waterfall. Uniquely beautiful and idyllic. Then to St. Blasien. A beautiful cathedral with a huge dome. And again it was a wonderful hike ... however, a tick bite had to be taken care of by the doctor 😬
    Tomorrow it continues😁👋

    First we went to the white cathedral of St. Blasien again this morning. A beautiful, bright cathedral with a huge dome. (Third largest in Europe).
    Then in light rain always uphill to the Lehenkopf lookout tower. View was rain ...
    Through beautiful heathland on narrow paths, across pastures with cows and bulls to the Ibach Peace Cross. The clouds rose briefly, the triumvirate Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau could be guessed at, with snow on the peaks, and a wind (wind force 12) and rain, which was just fun. I felt like I could fly😃🤩
    Old Black Forest farms can be seen, the rain sometimes subsides a little to start again immediately.
    With lamp pigs there is another view of the Feldberg and then it goes downhill on a dirt road, but of course there is no way without a gorge. So the path just downhill ... mountain up again and then into the Hohweraschlucht.
    Over beautiful bridges through beautiful nature

    I started from Todtmoos in the middle of the rain. I quickly bought some ham to bring from the butcher. Visited the church and up to the rehabilitation clinic, then down to Au with its sawmills. And it was raining ... no photos ...
    In the steep up and down through the Hotzenwald. The climbs never end ... wet, slippery and beautiful. Below you can see Wehratalstrasse ... but there is still a long way to go. The path winds along the rope-secured slope over mossy stones and trees.
    And at some point the descent will come. Always along the stream, beautiful vegetation, wooden bridges and finally the Wehratal bridge. Seen idyllic spell forest sections, still rain, and finally into weir. A nice hotel for the last evening.
    A beautiful long-distance hiking trail has gone! Schluchtensteig was great !!!!
