Easy walking – The “Baldeneysteig” in Essen

Live is running so fast at the moment. Winter is over and we had almost 20 degrees Celsius last week.

I had many things going on in my family, so I did not have much time to take photos. And when time was available, I wasn’t in the mood. Unfortunate though, the weather was so great!

It was a welcome change that we hiked a small part of the “Baldeneysteig” in Essen. The Baldeneysteig is a hiking trail, 22km long in total. I would not say that the hike is very difficult, but since it goes up and down all the time it’s exhausting. But we were rewarded by a great view on the top of the trail.

Additionally to the view we have to announce a pretty uncommon animal spotting for this region: A beaver.

It’s uncommon because these guys are usually night active and because the Baldeneysee (a lake) is frequently visited by many humans. I only had my small lens with me (18-55mm) but the photo is enough for a proof ๐Ÿ™‚ .

Here are some impressions:


Have a good weekend and enjoy the sunshine if you can ๐Ÿ™‚
