In the last 15 years I've driven past the rocks near Rümmelsheim a thousand times on the A61 and actually always wanted to see what they look like up close. So it was obvious that today we went to the Nahe tributary Trollbach, on the left bank of which several rock formations tower up clearly visible.The Troll Cliffs are a designated natural monument. They consist of a coarse-grained fanglomerate, which is composed of the Lower Devonian rocks of the Hunsrück. These are mainly quartzites, sandstones, slate and phyllites. In addition, there are limestones that come from a central Devonian reef near Stromberg. The three most conspicuous rocks are called "Nicholas", "Camel" and "Egg Rocks".de.wikipedia.org/wiki/TrollfelsenSo it went a little criss-cross past the rocks in order to be able to see them from all directions. From there the tour then leads through the vineyards and the forest above Münster-Sarmsheim to the Galgenberg near Waldalgesheim. Past a game reserve, it goes back in a loop to Rümmelsheim, where the fire brigade had meanwhile confiscated our parking lot for practice purposes.
A very pretty butterfly🦋.I don't think I've seen this species before.

Very nice tour and pictures; When I open the Wikipedia link and tap the blue words there again, I only notice how many foreign words there are in scientific language, of whose existence, let alone meaning, I have no clue. In doing so, we don't just "walk around" in the geography, but constantly stumble over the geology.
