      Today it should be a small round, so in the twilight forest, is close enough. Now in autumn you get completely different impressions than in spring or summer. 🍁🍂
      Unfortunately, it rained again in between and towards the end, so I wasn't too dissolute despite my rain gear😹

      ... I went on a speed hike to get to the first 1000 km of my Komoot use in the last twilight 🚶‍♀️
      And what can I say: now I'm still missing 1 (in words: ONE) crumbly kilometer for the anniversary !!! 🙃🤪🥴
      Well, I'll have to leave tomorrow after all

      Today I wanted to run under 20 km again for a change, but it didn't quite work ganz
      In addition, Komoot again did not accept that I had to choose a different starting point than planned and then varied a bit. So I started walking the planned route, but missed the observation tower - since I was only at the lake district at noon, it didn't matter, because the paths there were already heavily frequented ...
      Overall, I hadn't imagined the area to be so green and unspoilt, but it was very beautiful. Maybe I'll come back in summer to climb the lookout towerurm

      After my little cat was lucky enough to be able to visit her favorite vet again yesterday, I thought to myself: I must be lucky with the weather, so I went back to Coesfeld at random. And I was lucky: it was better than expected. Sunshine all the time from half past nine to half past five !!!
      The title says it all - I've seen places in the city where I've never been before, seen a lot of land (now I'm including the forest sections) - well, and the river ...
      I don't have to say anything, as often as I've crossed the Berkel Berk
      Of course I cached again because the round was planned that way. Caching also made me fall in love with the "Uferpromenade" at the Berkel, the wet ones 🥾🥾 didn't matter
      And without the cache, I would never have gotten to the Hobbit Trail.
      Unfortunately, the lap has the disadvantage that you often cross roads with heavy traffic or have to walk along them, but with almost 30 km this is not so important.
      Overall nice, but now I'm done ...

      A weekend without sunshine?
      That can not be!
      We're going out as far as we can🚗🚗
      I see ...
      Stadtlohn offers itself, the Berkelau. Romantic river in autumn clothes - and threatening thunderstorms in suit ...
      But I caught a few rays of sun on this - for me rather unusual - hiking afternoon. A beautiful circular tour that is very varied with the forest trails, but rather short

      ... then it's best to get your circulation going early in the morning with a hearty hike home😸.
      I'm not afraid of any 🌧️, 🌪️ and the weather, there is also time for a little 🧘‍♀️, and then the delicious second, well-deserved breakfast ... 😻😻😻

      Today on the road again. This time a little round through the Reken forest with its mighty hills 😜
      It was OK for the weather. The forest nature trail is a real discovery, not just for children. In Reken itself there is certainly still the museum of local history to be seen in the mill, as well as a few other places. For today there was enough civilization ...

      After 10 days of partly forced break, I'm going again today. The Davert had long been on my wish list, so I used the standard holiday to go on a hike home 😸😜😸
      Parked in Davensberg, I looked at the Deipenwiese (many bird species brood in early summer), the castle tower, a beautiful gem, and came across the Schenkenwaldbrücke to a curiosity: the "farmers golf course", actually Swin golf club. Looked a bit like the larger version of a mini golf course, but the game made up for it, which you could even feed ...
      I crossed a pedestrian bridge over the autobahn, which I didn't really care about, and into the forest, on the Heckrinderrunde. But I had to run a long time before I saw the Heck cattle and the Konik horses. They were in the pasture by the observation tower (how nice of you ...). After I had covered a good 4 km without human encounters, the few visitors felt like a crowd. A nice couple from Munster, cyclists, talked to me about the horses, the cattle, the herons, and also about Gloria, the Schermbeck wolf. In addition, the man lent me his binoculars for a few moments, with which I could observe the animals better. Thanks for that :-)
      The Koniks came to our fence, and in contrast to the Dülmen wild horses, they let themselves be caressed, petted and caressed. They looked funny with the burr hairstyle in their mane and tail.
      Currently there are only three on the pasture (mare, foal, stallion), but it should be about 6 - 8 horses.
      My hike continued in the direction of Haus Borg and Haus Bisping, both beautiful medieval / Weser Renaissance buildings, unfortunately privately owned and therefore not open to the public. Only from the outside.
      On the way back it started to rain. I bypassed the main road and left the Steinhorst house that was originally planned, then walked through the forest again, almost the same way back - unfortunately also over the pedestrian bridge over the A1 ...
      But then, when the rain really poured out, I was back at the train station.
      Overall a nice tour of the southern Davert. I even ran into a deer with huge antlers in the forest, unfortunately too fast for the camera. I will definitely be back in the spring when the Koniks have foals again. One can already recommend the Heckrinderroute, but it is considerably shorter.

      So, sh ... a two-week break, I have to get out again - and it was good to be on the road🚶‍♀️😻🚶‍♀️
      So that I can slowly get back inside 😹😹😹, I chose the Raesfelder Tiergarten for a visit this afternoon. Had the advantage that I could have shortened relatively many places if the ankle had made itself felt. But he persevered🦸‍♀️🤸‍♀️😸
      The zoo is artificially built and is maintained in a primeval forest, but the bark beetle is also active here, unfortunately. Not to mention EPS ...
      It was noisy at the castle, nice and quiet in Havelich with nice tractor drivers 😁😉, and after the rain I had the zoo to myself. Nice 😇😻😇

      Never follow your childhood tracks if you are not ready for it ...
      I thought I was ready today because on days like this .. 🎂
      But no, I'm just different😂😂😂
      It started well, the light, the paths, the weather were all fantastic.
      But: I had to avoid a planned path, as my old jogging path was largely closed due to construction work. So I walked through the settlement where I grew up - everything has changed so much and is still so secluded.
      Then along the Wiedehopfstraße, which is not recommended for hiking, because of the trucks ...
      Through a nice settlement in Wanne along the Emscher, as I couldn't use the dike path. Up the Hoppenbruch heap, break, enjoy, and descend - bang !!! Departure? I bent over, it hurt like hell - but Indians are well known ...
      I ran the tour bravely to the end, once around the Ewaldsee, also a venue for early youth. Everything changes here too🤔
      Through the forest back to the car - and here I recognized the big ankle - crap!
      After all, I received some consolation from my mother - a delicious lunch and a piece of cake. But everyone else has to hike for the rest of the week ...
