As mentioned yesterday, I went hiking today with my Dad.
The forest where I usually go, Westermark near Syke, is not very big – you could probably walk all the way round in three hours or so. Nonetheless, I wouldn’t go hiking there all alone, especially not at minus ten degrees. As hiking spots go, this one is not very busy and some of the less frequented paths are pretty overgrown. If you slip and hurt yourself on one of the less frequented paths, it could take a long time for someone to find you.
I took my camera along. I didn’t see any deers or wild boars this time (I’ve seen both in the past), just some lovely snowy scenery. Have some photos behind the cut:
Here is a snowy wood path.
Some snow frosted branches.
Snowy farmland at the edge of the forest.
A snow-covered field that is located in the middle of the forest for some reason. You can actually make it out on the aerial Google view.
The same field from a different angle.
More snowy farmland on the other side of the forest.
Sunlight falling through the snowy trees.
