Spring winter is a term I know from Lapland. It describes the season in which the birds greet the longer light with their chirping, in which it splashes and flows everywhere and the first green shoots peek out between the snow fields. This is exactly how it felt today on our tour through the Okertal in the Harz Mountains.You can find more tours around Goslar here: sonne-wolken.de/wandern-goslarFrom Goslar we started in the direction of Waldschrathütte, where we first follow the border path for a while. At the first fork in the road, however, we keep to the left and follow the signs in the direction of Okertalsperre and Schulenberg.With the thick head we reach the highest point of the tour, then it goes downhill on narrow paths on the river Steile Brahmke. The last 1.5 kilometers to the Okertalsperre are annoyed by a paved path, which we then quickly leave to follow the high path on the north bank. Again and again there are great views over the dam.At the Raven Cliffs, the path goes along the road for a short time. Since the Okertal is closed to car traffic for an indefinite period, that's not a problem.The further course of the route through the Okertal also benefits from the road closure. Where the rippling of the water was actually permanently accompanied by the background noise caused by the road, there is now an unexpected and wonderful silence. And I can't avoid making comparisons to spring in Canada or Yosemite National Park.Actually the way back to Goslar from the Waldhaus would have been only about 5 kilometers, but after five hours in the cold the lips were rough and the cheeks red and the request for a hot coffee on the sofa was loud. And so this wonderful spring adventure ended for us today at the Waldhaus, from where the bus goes back to Goslar.
Really great pictures, I also want to go to the Harz Mountains
