What you see here is not an error or a picture that has not loaded properly - it is the view we had from our hotel room on the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 28:
A little later, it looked like this:
It was our last full day here in Oberjoch. We decided to walk to the Kanzel (chancel), a viewing point at the rim of the valley where Oberjoch is located, looking out across the wider, lower valley with Bad Hindelang in the middle.
The road leading from the top to the bottom (or vice versa, of course) is one of the curviest roads I have ever seen, with very sharp bends. We'd been riding on the bus back to Oberjoch a few days before, and it truly is a challenge for buses, lorries and so on to navigate the bends and curves.
It claims to have more than a 100 curves, and you can see a good picture of it here.
We stayed there for a while, drinking in the views, before walking back on a different path, approaching Oberjoch from the top so that we arrived at our hotel without going through the village again and having to walk up the slope. It was time for coffee and cake, and afterwards, we rested for a while.
Later, we walked back down to the village to buy our souvenirs - cheese etc. at a farm shop. We also had a look at one or two other shops in the village but did not find anything we wanted (or needed) to take home.
The next morning, we took the last pictures from our hotel room before having breakfast, packing our things and checking out.
Driving home to Ludwigsburg took us about 2 1/2 hours, but the roads were very busy and the drive was rather tiring. Our holiday in the mountains was over, but we still were off work for the rest of the week, and of course I will tell you about the remainder of our holiday, too.
