October 31, 2020Süntel | Halloween on the HohensteinIf you try the picture search on Aunt Google and enter "goats with chin-length floppy ears", you get hundreds of photos. If you quickly click on to Wikipedia, you already have the solution.At the start of the tour at the Langenfeld hiking car park, wonderfully located directly across from a meadow with orchards, we are greeted by curious “Boer goats”. You can read that they originally come from South Africa and came to Germany in 1977 together with lions - as their provisions (!).When I'm out and about with Klaus from Lemgo, it happens in Lipperland. Today is different. We tour around the Süntel. For orientation. The Süntel is a low mountain range southwest of Hanover, north of Hameln and west of Bad Münder.There are five of us from two households. We arrive with two vehicles. Unbeatable advantage, a long hike is possible again. At the destination we deposit vehicle A and drive vehicle B to the start. After the hike we collect A again with the help of B and drive with A and B to Hessisch Oldendorf. In the Weinschänke Rohdental we have the last opportunity to stop for dinner before the lockdown.The phrase "I haven't been everywhere yet, but it's on my list" comes from the pen of the American writer Susan Sontag, not from the cloud of empty phrases. And that's how I felt today. I've never been to this region. It is not checked off now, but kept in mind. The tour was nice.I will forego a detailed tour description. Many were there before me who left their impressions. Even today - on this dark, rainy day - there is a lot of activity.The seemingly subterranean average speed has to do with the fact that the person with the shortest legs always sets the pace. And that was “Mini” today, the youngest participant.We contribute photos. You can find the one from Klaus from Lemgo here.komoot.de/tour/278875094

When looking at these photos, I immediately remember how it must have smelled there.

Learned a lot again today. I had never heard of Boer goats before and I had no idea about the Süntel either. After all, I've already been to the nearby area, namely on the Deister near Bad Münder 😀 (komoot.de/tour/101833210). Great area. I felt then as you do now. One would like to come back.

Lutz - thank you very much. Only the pandemic keeps me from tackling the countless hiking destinations that one carries around in one's head. I am currently also avoiding trips to Berlin. Tours, looking at photos but also talking shop between you and Silvia D., for example about dynamic range or the use of filters, I find entertaining ... 🤓
Very atmospheric pictures! Really nice!
