Snapshot Saturday: a peek at a peak

This bulky cliff of long thin fang-like rocks that we could see last week from our Black Forest hotel while on our European Escape piqued our interest.  So on our last afternoon, while Malcolm was having a rest, I set off to explore.

I had only the most basic of maps: but this is Germany, land of the Walker’s Waymark.  Once I knew I was off to Falkenstein, there was no problem.  I yomped up to the woods outside town, turned right, and set forth.

I even tried to get a little lost, but however hard I tried, I was never far from a reassuring sign pointing me onwards to my chosen destination.

Once there, I found I couldn’t have more than a peek at a time.  That solid mass of rock visible from our hotel was never once in full view.  Instead, one, two, possibly three peaks at a time pointed skyward from my path below.  Here they are.

This post is in response to this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge: Peek.

      1. ‘verb
        (intransitive)
        to walk or trek laboriously, esp heavily laden and over difficult terrain
        Collins English Dictionary.’ So I was lying. I wasn’t ‘yomping’ at all.

  1. My interest is piqued by your peeks at the peaks! And by “yomped”–I went and looked it up before I saw your definition. Now I need to use it in a sentence several times, to add it to my vocabulary!
