      I bought a new water bottle that is attached to the frame with rubber cable ties. The standard recording is unfortunately already occupied by the castle, which is being driven for a walk :-)
      The position can still be optimized, but the bottle itself is firmly in place and easy to remove.
      This time I skipped the nasty trails on the south side of the dam, such as the Pinner steep section, due to a lack of desire, ability and time :-)

      Small but nice tour for after work. Perfect weather, trails not too wet and not dry. Was fun!

      Just drove off and found two unknown places:
      The old weir system of the Gutmühle, which was razed after a long legal dispute in 2009 for ecological reasons. It's a shame, the desired passage for fish could certainly have been made differently ...
      In a small side valley of the Wahnbach, do I still have an old pond that was also destroyed? found.

      Perfect sunny weather in the middle of February. Why are the first warm days of the year so great?

      Today there was actually 15 cm of fresh snow. So made a Sunday walk - with the MTB.
      There was a lot going on on the Neunkirchen toboggan slope, even a few snowboarders were out and about. I was able to park the bike briefly on a snowball and watch the goings-on. Driving worked well in the snow, I hadn't tried it like that before. Sometimes snow gets into the rear derailleur, then it doesn't switch fluffy,

      On Saturday the temperatures were actually quite pleasant and well over 5 degrees. Hard to believe that one day later there will be 15 cm of snow.
      So on the bike and just set off. Actually, the bike shouldn't be totally dirty, but that doesn't work at all at the moment .....

      This afternoon, after a long time, sunshine was announced again, so quickly on the bike and the plan was to enjoy the sun on the heights - the result was a ride through the Wahnbach and Naafbachtal. Not bad, it really got warm on the demanding trails in the Naafbachtal ...

      In October the water level of the Wahnbach dam is quite low. Opportunity to take a lap at the bottom of the dam. Because of the resting wild geese, I only took a few photos from a distance.

      Today was the perfect day to catch up on a tour that was canceled due to flat tire. Does perfect weather never end? There was a lot going on in the Siegtal, even a small fair in Eitorf. Unfortunately, the obligatory ice cream was canceled because of what felt like a 100m long line in front of the ice cream parlor. Trail-wise it was rather poor, because of the dryness there were some steep sections.
      And even in our area there are a few vertical meters if you do not drive along the valleys, but across them .....

      In the Wahnbachtaltalsperre there is always very little water at the end of September, but this year the water level is exceptionally low due to the drought.
      So I went there out of curiosity. There is a bit of apocalyptic mood because the areas are unusually empty and barren - something is missing :-)
      The outlet structure of the pre-dam has something eerie - bare concrete. Hopefully the lock won't open and wash you away :-)
      You can see the dam of the former Wahnbachtalstraße including the bridge structure and you can drive on it.
      The earth slowly becomes brittle and dries up, but the areas that have been dry for a few weeks are already green again.
