I’m not much of an Alpinist.

That being said, I didn’t really like the large mountain range that lay ahead on the map…

But hey, what you gonna do?

Like before, the answer was:

water

Walk:

gas station

…through little settlements to stock up on supplies:

market

…through the slopes that spiral up and down the mountain side:

view from the mountain

…breathe the fresh air:

mountainside

…look at the mountains that lie ahead:

road up the mountain

…and finally turn into a small service road that seems to lead up to the peak:

mountain road

There’s a small shrine there that looks abandoned:

temple

The road splits into two dirt tracks, with the larger one leading across a small creek:

With the sky getting darker and darker, and the forest getting more sinister around the way, this is about the time to think about where to spend the night:

camp at night

I’m no fool, I thought.

I had asked people about the potential risks in this area before.

Wolves – none.

Bears – none.

Spiders – not poisonous.

Snakes – come out only in summer.

People – only the friendly farmer kind.

So basically there I sat in my tent, perfectly happy watching movies and sorting out pictures, and eventually I went to sleep.

All the while not having a clue about what it was that was really out there.

I never got to see it.

    Ok, da so viele mittlerweile Deutsch schreiben tue ich es auch.

    Super Video heute. Sieht so friedlich aus an dem kleinen Bach 🙂

    ja der bach ist klasse, aber auch ohne wölfe, bären oder irgendwelche gefährlichen menschen (spinnen sind ja immer schrecklich….) fände ich den gedanken alleine irgendwo da im wald zu zelten ziemlich gruselig!
    naja, wenigstens hat da bestimmt kein baby die ganze nacht gebrüllt… 🙂

    Hallo Christoph,
    das Video bringt`s ja doch wirklich deutlicher als die Fotos rüber, dass es ein verdammt langer Weg ist, den du dir da vorgenommen hast. Und den vielen Begegnungen zum Trotz auch ürgendwie schwer einsam (Bach hin- Bach her, Jule).
    Bewundernswert!
