On paths pretty destroyed by forestry, we went up from the valley of Bad Berka to Bergern and then down towards Legefeld via a level crossing to Hetschburg. We couldn't enjoy the beautiful views because of the hazy weather.
We took advantage of the sunshine and hiked from the "Steinkreuz" hiking car park to the sunny limestone slopes above Jena. Take off your jacket and hold your nose in the sun - this is a great way to start the New Year.
The year 2019 is now coming to an end. It was a good year because I could be outside a lot. As simple as that. I wish everyone who likes hiking or running shoes, tires or paddles in nature a good start to 2020!
