After another cool and rainy period, the first sunny day. Another walk onto the Engelsberg.
Last winter, the wood harvester cut wide aisles into the steep forest beneath. I took advantage of these aisles fo today´s "Direttissima" - ascent.
Lots of rose hips this year.
First coloured vine leaves.
Stubble field near ...
... vine yards.
Arrived at the forest.
View over the "Stonefield".
Reasonably walkable forest aisle.
Near the summit.
Here, at the southwestern end of the Engelsberg ridge, only the top of Schneeberg can be seen behind the Schlossberg.
A bit farther, on the the highest point, and a bit to the Northeast, the view to Schneeberg is much better.
