garmisch, finale : a hike through town





















A bike-ride through a few neighboring towns to Eisen lake in Germany lead to a car-ride to Eisen lake in Germany. Those hills and the previous' day bike-ride to town killed me. MM is so sweet and patient. He was so anxious to get some exercise through Germany but I pooped out on him, instead. We did make it through two towns away and the ride downhill was great. 

Once at Eisen lake you are in awe at its size and the clarity of the water. The lake is basically a reservoir that sits not nearly at the bottom of the Zugspitze, the highest peak in Germany, but in a valley with trails around the perimeter. If you're feeling even more adventurous you can hike through the forest, too. It was so beautiful and peaceful, I recommend packing some munchies and making a whole day of it. You can take advantage of the great little beaches and boats you can rent hourly. 

MM and I ended up hiking for about an hour with our youngest, stopping along the way to play in the water and climb on some rocks for a few family snaps. Later, we ate at a quaint restaurant by the lake for a quick bite to eat before picking up the wonder kids from camp.

It was a wonderful work-cation at the Edelweiss Resort & Lodge in the end. I got my R & R and the offspring got a taste of camp. Finally, MM and I got some alone time. Yep, we're looking forward to our trip back in December.

  1. I used to live in Ulmen, which wasn't too far from the Mosel river. Hiking with or without bikes was one of the better things to do :)
