Expedition

2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2628.jpg 2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2634.jpg I started at home at 12:20. I took the tram 3 until the terminus Druseltal. The tram was four minutes late and missed the bus by two minutes, I should wait for 28 minutes. So I started there to hitchhike. After one minute a car stopped, and with two more cars I arrived at Zierenberg at 13:43. At the end of Ehlen I had a first view to the Großer Bärenberg. In English the name would be Greater Bear Mount, but as greater or smaller Bear Mount, not Greater Bear or Smaller Bear mount. At the arrival at Zierenberg there was a blue sky, but no sun.

2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2657.jpg 2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2658.jpg After a short dance I found the hash at a small stump between three trees.

2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2660.jpg 2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2661.jpg View to the south and view to the west.
2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2662.jpg 2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2663.jpg View to the north and view to the east.
2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2666.jpg I wrote a mark on a tree.
2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2667.jpg 2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2672.jpg Neat the hash I found some snow, not enough for a snowman. And I found a can for rum, I took it away and got the deposit for it.
2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2673.jpg 2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2674.jpg Then I waited for four o'clock. For other geohashers. While I waited a veloci-raptor approached and passed by at the hash. I think it took all the timber for nest building.
2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2694.jpg 2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2697.jpg After 4 o'clock I walked on. I wanted to have a view from the tower on the mount. I walked and climbed and at the last 600 meters there was a lot of snow on the way and I became very tired. I couldn't resist against the strong wind, so I didn't walk on the top of the tower. The view at this time was not very good, and I got only one photo of Zierenberg.
2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2736.jpg 2015-03-07 51 9 GeorgDerReisende 2739.jpg Then I walked down to the valley. I took another way with less snow. Back in Zierenberg I saw flying geese and cranes on their journey to the north.
