Due to illness had to send out Judith Thomas alone. But they brought him to the starting point and the end point brought him again. So Thomas started up the first small slope and had at least 50 meters thoughts but to turn back. The cold that Judith has incapacitated, Thomas has also had before and here he realized due to the cold air and the slope of that but a few residues are present. Besides, this is often a thought at the start of a larger migration: Just back on the couch. But only at the beginning, because if you had the first warmed up, one begins to enjoy nature and the view. It grew even beautiful flowers along the way, the typical early flowering plants that grow on the forest floor before the foliage takes away the light, already bloomed eagerly. Young shoots of fresh green everywhere lined the roadside. The birds were awake and active. The vision of a duly-sounding name viewpoints Aalbäumle, Falk fall, fall Pfaff, Sedelfelsen and noise rock was due to the cold, sunny weather beautiful than on hot summer days. Only in breathing you could feel the cold air made to create the throat and lungs. Or was it the purity of these that made to create the Hamburg city accustomed air breathing organs. No emissions, only the scent of spring caressed the senses. Nature is here in the South, despite some places even more visible snowfields already more than in the north. Given towards the end yet had the expected voltage with caves in the rock, an even that big barn, to traverse along the way, then steeply up the hill even a ladder had to cope with the way ... Well, the cave was very wide and bright, the manager had only 3 steps, but what remains is the memory of the last third of really spektaktuläre hike, with the incredible location of the ruins Rosenstein, perched on the steep rock above Heubach above. Here, however, brought by a tourist restaurant and civilization to the conqueror lonely again. Another spectacular descent from here on stairs and narrow paths on the steep slope. Then, after what felt like 40 kilometers and 2000 meters uphill and downhill, an illusion ?! Thomas hears the voice of his loved ones, seem to call him. The senses do not contribute, Judith met him a piece. Now Thomas also knows what he really missed on this hike.
