After a few days of resting (read: hobbling) from our accidental 8-hour hike, Luna and I returned to the Black Forest for some more stunning scenery. This time, instead of climbing relentlessly, I decided to take the low roads for a more leisurely stroll (read: one that didn’t make me want to cry at hour seven).
We started by entering the Black Forest at Günterstalstraße near Hans-Thoma-Straße and veering left up the hill. Then I chose the widest, easiest looking way every time the path forked.
And very soon, we stumbled upon a curious wooden owl.
And an alligator sign pointing down the path in front of us.
These were cute, but the hike got even better about ten seconds later when I saw something peering at me through the trees…
And it totally turned out to be a giant dragon made out of old trees (complete with moss!).
(But don’t worry. We’re safe, because it is chained to the ground by its fangs…see?)
Did I mention that I love the Black Forest? Because where else would you stumble upon a dragon? See? Freiburg is awesome. You should go.
