A walk around Dreistetten 23.9.2010

Once more the weather is extremely bright and clear, so I have to go out. Today, I drive in direction Dreistetten, park my car between Muthmannsdorf and Dreistetten and walk over fields and grassland and through forest to the foothill of Hohe Wand.

Once more mist is hanging at the entrance of the Prosset gorge; this time I walk a little bit up to ruin Emmerberg, to get a better view.

Schneeberg and Hohe Wand

Ruin Emmerberg

A bit up the slope, the stubble field still is in shadow.

The rocky escarpments of Schlossberg in morning backlight.

Spiders have had a good time here..

Starting near the big curve in the road between Muthmannsdorf and Dreistetten.

The foothills of Hohe Wand in the west.

Last rape green manure culture

In the forest: Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare) ...


 ... and mushrooms on an old trunk, which I cannot identify.

Fruits of Fuchs´s ragwort inside the forest.

Near Frankenhof, view to Hohe Wand with the Herrgottschnitzer hut. Here, I have to turn back, regrettably.

Still lots of Fly agarics (Amanita muscaria).
