    G&K ALASKA 2020:
    Day NINE:
    From the Hoppecke source on the CLEMENSBERG to Medebach, 23km, descent: 600m
    At the Hoppecke source on the CLEMENSBERG:
    The still distant screeching of the “spruce mopeds” sets into the morning silence.
    Thunder.
    The hardworking forest workers start their daily work early, however, a glance at the clock shows that it is only half past six.
    After another look at the sky, we are grateful to them:
    It is still dry.
    Brisk departure.
    The tent is quickly dismantled and we follow the path of the stones:
    There are many marking stones on this section of Rothaarsteig / Uplandsteig: boundary stones, marksmen and signposts.
    It's dark, the air feels like rain.
    We hike past the closed Clemensberg hut.
    When looking back, the Clemensberg with its open quarry wound is our companion for long meters.
    The small bakery in Hildfeld closes at nine in the morning.
    Thanks again to the early forest workers.
    There is no coffee.
    Neither is evidence.
    While eating a cherry crumble, we listen to the stories of past adventures, told by an eager villager.
    Otherwise a quiet place.
    Interesting is the village path, which shoots steeply behind the village into the terrain and to Grönebach and further ??? leads. If you don't want to walk along the main road, you have to tackle a few meters of altitude.At 600 m we go over the Hille before we climb up.
    Beautiful meadow path on a slope with a view back to the Clemensberg.
    Today there is also gradually the certainty that we will finish the tour, that we will reach our destination. In the meantime, it also looks a lot like we can do it in the planned ten days.
    Only the fact that we physically, especially my flat feet are worth mentioning, after this time scratch a little to the limit, the downside in terms of longer hiking plans and wishes.
    The story that the backpack is longer and easier to carry is fortunately confirmed.
    Body and backpack weight probably add up in the brain to a uniform mass to be carried.
    We tend to approach another selected highlight of our walking trip downhill:
    The Ruhr source.
    As a man from the Ruhr, I "must" have been here once.
    Funny the river sign "Ruhr" in front of an extremely unspectacular trickle.
    Soon the source stone and the source, which is just wet, can be found.
    Will probably not drink anything with Ruhr spring water.
    At first calm, soon a flood of cyclists poured over the ensemble.
    As hikers, we stay among ourselves.
    This is a piece of land for cyclists, especially the Ebiker (up and down) and the Ruhr Valley Cycle Path (up train, down bike).
    The "real" Ruhr spring lies a few inconspicuous meters behind the source stone, a minimal water flow quickly flows out of a popular plastic tube, just enough to moisten your lips.We walk through a picturesque place called Küstelberg, which also seems to harbor a bit of tourism.At the shelter at Henkmannskopf we are just having a snack with the last remnants when a huge wooden truck appears like a forest monster.
    We are fascinated to see how handily the man with the mechanical gripper juggles, charges, rearranges and arranges the giant trunks.
    Lashed down.
    Leaves.
    Huge truck in the forest.
    Important labels on the wood.
    In the valley of the butterflies, in the Gelängebachtal, there are many blooming thistles, the flock of insects, but especially butterflies such as the imperial coat and the peacock butterfly attract.
    Photographing butterflies is always annoying because they often “click” the wings to fold at the same time.
    A pair of peacock eyes and an imperial coat graciously open in the sun.
    After almost 20km a shelter, clean and with strict rules, no bivouac.
    If we do not need it today, the last break will remain before the finish, because today we have already booked a room in Medebach out of the forest for hygienic reasons.
    The beautiful meadows on the left a last pleasant sight of nature in front of the city. Once we have to cross the city center before we disturb the day of rest of the hotelier “Zum Oesterntor” and enjoy the advantages of a room.The end is near.
    At dinner, the emotions make room for the end of a journey.
    A little bit of grief that it is coming to an end, a little relief to have survived.
    A little anticipation of home.

    Again very entertaining.
    Tip: The Hochheide is also an absolute classic, or especially in winter when there is a lot of snow. There we go hiking at least twice from the Hochheidehütte.
