Joerg W. went running.

Another long running tour. Summery warm🌤, but not too hot 👌. The first 5km on the Lahntal cycle path, then shortly before Runkel into the Kerkerbachtal. At the second bridge we cross the brook and it goes over freshly mown, fragrant meadows to the Hofener Mühle (km 9). Great cafe and rest area! Behind the mill is a small stream and a trail. We'll take it and we'll soon be in Hofen. At the Hofener church we cross the main street and take a dirt road leading slightly uphill towards Niedertiefenbach. After a while we come to a nice piece of forest. The path leads us downhill and shortly before the village we keep left on a meadow path and cross the edge of the village. We continue through the village and soon we are back on long country lanes. We pass numerous farms: Marienhof, Casseler Hof, Marienhof (apparently popular name😄), Egidiushof (there are delicious organic eggs☝️), Arnsdorfer Hof. After a few km "Hoftour" we cross under the Meil and get to Ahlbach. Here we meet sheep at a wayside shrine, enjoying the delicious grass. We continue south on dirt roads, past the 2 old wind turbines (Dewind, design Ferdinand Porsche!) And come back to our starting point in Dickerich
