11 Miles Hike


We had a lot of rain over the last weeks, not the perfect weather to go out and to take photos, but the last two days were good. Yesterday, I checked the weather report online, because the previous day was already good, and it seemed it would be the perfect day for a hike. I was right, and I am glad I used the chance, because the weather will get worse again as it seems. I started my hike in the morning so that I could see the sunrise in the forest, and I heard the early birds chirping around me. I didn’t really know where I wanted to go, but I had enough time to study the maps during the rainy days, to find out what places I still could discover. When I started my hike, I noticed that I really was in a hiking mood, and that I was in a good condition for a long hike. I walked around 11 miles or 18 kilometers, but I didn’t break my personal record of 14 miles. It doesn’t matter, because I could take some cool photos on my way, and 11 miles was still a lot, everything hurts now.

I did take paths through forests, over fields, and I saw some villages outside of Reinfeld. As said, I didn’t have a plan where I would go, I just knew some spots on the map that I would like to reach. There is a village that is in a higher position than Lübeck, not much higher, because we don’t have hills in the North, but high enough to be able to see the 7 church towers of Lübeck in the distance, and I really wanted to take a photo there. I will show you the result soon when I edited the images. I did also have luck with deer, I found a lot of deer on my way, some photos are bad, but others are really good. Hiking in the morning is something very special, I saw the sunrise when I was in the forest, it’s the photo in this post, but generally it’s very relaxing to see the nature.

    1. Thank you Vera. Our forests in Northern Germany are often very small, not so big like the forests in Thuringia or those in Bavaria. But it’s still interesting to walk through our smaller forest lands 🙂 I am glad you like the photo and it’s interesting to hear that you think it looks like people imagine it to be. 🙂

  1. Wow Dennis, such a beautiful click. I can say you had a great time. and wow, 11 miles walk.. That’s a good walk, and Deer as your company,awesome…:) Have a great weekend.

    1. Yes, it was a lot of fun, I like hiking, but if I hike too much, I sometimes have pain for several days 😀 In this case, it was maybe too much, everything did hurt afterwards 😀 But still I think it’s healthy. To find all the deer in the forests and on the fields, that was a very good experience 🙂 Have a nice weekend too!
