About Ein 🐟 namens Wander

Am liebsten bin ich zu Fuß in der Natur unterwegs. Beim Wandern ist in den allermeisten Fällen meine Familie mit dabei, wenn die aber nicht überredet werden kann (z. B. zum Rennen), dann gehe ich auch mal alleine.

      This slightly modified Stahlberg loop was suggested to me by komoot a few weeks ago when I was looking at tours in the Rhine Valley.
      When my fellow hikers asked for a tour of less than 20km for today in unison, I took it on unprocessed. In the meantime I had noticed that the Stahlberg Loop was awarded by the German hiking institute. Completely without asphalt and dirt roads (at least no gravel roads) it apparently didn't work. However, there was a lot to discover along the way, so that the types of trails I didn't like were overlaid by Kurzweil - especially by many fantastic views, especially on the slope directly on the Rhine.
      I found the omnipresent slate in all possible variations quite impressive - I had never seen it in this abundance before. I also find the apparent noise resistance of the residents at the Bacharach city wall very impressive - the freight trains almost go straight through the living room 🙉📢
      Next time I would perhaps consult the route planner in more detail. But it was nice despite the asphalt.

      Our weekend hike was spontaneously adjusted to the weather forecast today and postponed until tomorrow. So today I had the opportunity to do an exploration run again. The other day I was toying with the idea of using my job ticket to expand the "radius of movement" and today I did it to see more of the interesting inland dunes in the area. While still sitting in the S-Bahn, I was amazed at the pile of storks that was frolicking at the recycling yard in Wiesloch when they drove past - the surprise cleared up a little later when I walked past the Walldorf Storchenwiese. Was the AVR system planned as a "food habitat"? 😆
      The route ran from the Walldorf S-Bahn station in a rough direction along the Hardtbach with a dangling over Sandhausen, through the Schwetzinger Hardt to the Oftersheimer dune and from there back to Rohrbach.
      The running pace was (just about) leisurely with walking breaks after 10, 19 and 24 km.
      ... and the new slippers are now probably also broken in =)

      For today's tour I was again inspired by Nicolet (tinyurl.com/52j2xfma) and tried to push the up and down a bit to the extreme for altitude training ... and also a few ways that I didn't know myself. So z. B. the first flight of stairs from the panorama road to the ant hump or the descent from Geisberg to the old town.
      After our tour yesterday I was sent to hike alone today 😇. Unfortunately, my battery was already at 70% at the beginning - it went down on its knees shortly before the thunderous finale: the Rohrbacher Himmelsleiter downhill and then caramel cheese cake from "Zuckerrohr".
      In the meantime (at the Turnerbrunnen) I had thought about rescheduling and running over the white stone for lunch, but on the one hand I had enough provisions with me (break at the folding rule) and was unsure because I still had the Königsstuhl ladder to heaven (which has really tubed) and ... the battery.
      Maybe that's a variant for later 😉

      After a week of preparation for (involuntary) special work, I felt the need for a special tour this weekend. Some time ago (February I think) I had the template for this one from Supermanu and Stefanie (thank you both!) - I think it was the "Rheingräfenstein Vitaltour". Without further ado it was extended to include the Rotenfels and instead shortened a little on the "Stadtwald-side" in order to be able to sell it better to my fellow hikers 😎😁 Also included was the crossing over the Nahe with the only hand ferry in southern Germany (which is only active from April - a reason to wait so long).What can I say ... there are tours that you plan, you picture it in your mind beforehand and afterwards you are disappointed about something. Today the tour exceeded expectations by far - I thought it was simply fantastic and would do it again just as easily. Tomorrow. As far as possible - except for the connections between the tours and my "shortcut" on narrow paths - many of them directly on the slope. Great views, many viewpoints with seating and (without Corona) also some places to stop for a break.I'm sure there will be a little more text here and there - and it will take some time to comment on the photos ...For those who like to run longer: The city forest still has a lot of variation up its sleeve.

      After we recently discovered newts while walking in the mountain cemetery and Kurt Fortwängler took pictures of a fire salamander in the Mühltal (tinyurl.com/fh6v4fcf), today we took a short tour through wetlands between Ziegelhausen and Handschuhsheim. Over the Mausbach and Steinbachtal up to the White Stone and from there through the Mühltal down again. Although we went to several ponds on the way, the search for fire salamanders was unfortunately not successful - it might be too cold or the humidity wasn't right or we were just too late ... who knows.
      But there were a few mice and squirrels and even two ducks to marvel at in a pond in the middle of the forest.
      On the Neckar-facing side above Ziegelhausen there were also a lot of joggers today - strange what they were probably doing there ... 🙄😄
      Lunch was not brought along today, but from the "to go" snack bar at the Weißen Stein ... it was worth it for that alone.

      Last week I stumbled across information about the Heidelberg Half Marathon and signed up spontaneously - it used to be too much for me, but at that moment I thought I'd do it. Because of Corona, the whole thing was organized as a virtual run, and you have time from April 10th to April 25th to complete the route. My first lap on the north side of the Neckar ... and my first official half marathon.
      Due to a lack of athletic ambition, I set myself a time under 2:30 as a casual goal - I still have to have time to take pictures 😁 It worked ...
      With the filled parking lot, I had concerns that many runners chose this Saturday, but in fact only a handful of runners were on the route, so you can move away from the much-visited corners (Philosophenweg and the paths from there to the Heiligenberg) could even enjoy the quiet in the forest. In terms of the nature of the path, the route was uninteresting - almost exclusively forest roads or asphalt - but that is obviously the case with "fun runs". So now submit it to TK and collect bonus points.

      Today a short lap in front of the front door because of the poor weather forecast. Now that I'm sitting at the computer and have already eaten the reward cake, the sun is shining outside.The declared goal was the goats at the ghost playground, but it took a lot of persuasion to convince my fellow hikers of the route ("way too far") - so they were in a hurry and the number of photos was correspondingly low. 😇
      At Nussloch, the entire forest is felt to be full of wild garlic and given the appropriate scent notes. I also noticed a few narrow paths on the Hirschberg above Leimen, which I could build in while jogging ...
      Special highlight: Rigid squirrel (but went to donate shortly after the picture)

      Today again an illustrated morning run - the last two mornings we just went through the fields.

      The Felsenmeer - another absolute highlight in the area, which I had heard of many times before, and which had been on the agenda for years ... but which I had always hesitated because of the bus parking lot.
      So today it was finally time, and luckily we had it to ourselves except for one (other) family of four - probably because of the mixture of Corona, early time and bad weather forecast - and although we were even able to enjoy the slightly overcast sun at the beginning. It's a fantastic piece of nature, these huge blocks, washed down by a stream that comes out from time to time ... and a full-body climbing training is also another way to start a tour (🥵). A great surprise was the African restaurant on the Felsberg summit, which unfortunately had just closed (a reason to come here again).
      The way to Melibokus was often but not exclusively on the Niebelungensteig and even beautiful forest paths, which we were allowed to share with some downhill riders. For the ascent, however, we chose the steeper variant (not "N") and were thus able to avoid a larger (and rather noisy) hiking group. In the meantime it was already a lot more cloudy - so we have to come here again to properly enjoy the view from Melibokus.
      Up to Auerbach Castle it was almost exclusively downhill - again on forest paths, and again as "moving obstacles" for downhillers. Our lunch break was originally planned at the castle, but it wasn't meant to be. Even going around the castle wall did not give us a secluded spot. For the break, a bench on a hill near Hochstädten had to serve, at least with a beautiful view, but increasingly nasty wind.
      The rest of the way was originally planned differently, but shortened by a few km due to the weather forecast - which was finally worth it, because the last 1.5 km it was already drizzling ...
      The next time - we have found enough reasons to come back - the royal camp will be included in the planning.

      After our last year's (two-lake) tour near Baiersbronn, shortly afterwards I looked at more of the sky tours and put them on the to do list. Today it was time for the woodmaker trip.
      It started very nicely - the relationship between forest paths and trails was pleasantly balanced at first, and every now and then there were information boards with interesting facts about the woodworking profession from the past and cultural-historical highlights on the way. From last year I also had fond memories of the path through the Kleemiss high moor. Today it was a bit cooler and there were no blueberries, but we had it all to ourselves (so we could climb over the many fallen trees in peace) ... but what I had apparently forgotten from last year was how proud the Baiersbronners of their forest paths must be, because they evidently like to build some of them into the official round trips. After our lunch break at the lake view, i.e. just from the second half of the tour, there was a little too much of it for my taste.
      If I would do the loop again, then from the Huzenbacher Seeblick I would like to take the detour to the waterfall (and this time warn my daughter that it is the same way up again 😇), but look for narrower paths from there ...Note to self: "the people of Baiersbronn love their forest paths!"
