I took these photos a couple months ago-
it was the end of Easter holiday, and beautiful Bavaria was covered with a thin sheet of snow.
I joined my host family on a little walk in the woods,
and up to a hut that served everything from beer to sausage to stew.
Germans literally drink beer at any time of the day,
and during any activity.
It was on this little hike that I was introduced to beer mixed with carbonated lemonade.
It may be my new favorite.
It was also on this little hike that I learned that huts sit at the top of many popular hikes.
At first, I couldn't wrap my head around it,
but now it makes total sense.
It is brilliant.
and something I will miss when I am back in California,
hiking in the Sierra's,
coming to the end of a long, hard climb,
and wishing for some beer and sausage at the end.
In Germany, this is real life.
In California, I better hope I packed a pretty awesome lunch.
Amazing beer and huts aside,
the walk was lovely.
I could have sat in silence all day,
admiring the views.
As much as I dread winter,
like really really loathe winter,
I do look forward to the next big snow fall.
My apologies for the lack of photos.
I forgot to put the SD card in my camera,
and my camera can only store 5 photos.
This was a mistake I hope to never, ever make again.
