At the beginning of the tour, nothing of Erfweiler could be seen from the viewpoint Hahnfels - the village was hidden under fog layers. But the preparations for setting up a fir-tree at the forefront of the Observation Flat were just underway when I got there. That's why at the end of the tour I hiked up to Hahnfels again, hoping that the tree would be lit - and I was not disappointed. The "fog walk" could not have run better from the timing. Just when I arrived on the Kahlenberg, the fog cleared and gave an overwhelming view of the Dahner castle group. That was certainly not calculated, but happiness and a gift.

A beautiful dream loop; Now in autumn, the Kirschweiler fortress unfolds its mystical effect even more intense than at other seasons, at least we felt that yesterday so. Quartzite cuboid in impressive size and variety in shape and form, and created mainly by nature. A big thank you to Ruschi - without her security measures two images probably would not have been created or probably not without accidents. Some photos are dedicated to Ingrid - she knows why.
After the obligatory refreshment in Cafe Risch in Morbach, we were again impressed by stones after the hike. The visit to the Leyser family in Kirschweiler
was once again a special experience. We like to share the impressions of the wonderful hike with you and thank you for the always competent advice and the pleasant chat about minerals, gems and many other topics.

This round trip, which belongs to the coastal path, also conveys a lot of interesting facts about the earth's history. In addition to the highlights Trift, Zeilstück and Neumühle, another characteristic of today's hike was the autumnal color spectrum of the vineyards that characterize the landscape.

My favorite among the Hiwweltouren! Rhyolite volcanic rock in the former quarry on the Mount of Olives, a former beach and a surf cliff on the Hornberg Island, oyster beds in Neu-Bamberg - a journey back in time in the geological history of Rheinhessen as in the Tertiary period about 30 million years ago the Upper Rhine ditch together with the Mainz basin had lowered and the entire region was flooded by a subtropical sea.
