The Black Forest is almost synonymous with dark fir forests but its highest mountain, the Feldberg, is curiously bare. It is the highest mountain in the state of Baden-Württemberg, and the highest in Germany outside of the Alps. It’s the top of the non-Alpine mountain tops, so to speak. And this isn’t even the actual top (but close). I haven’t got pictures of the actual top as 2 years ago, when we had endless, warm, dry days towards the end of summer, we managed to pick the one weekend when it was cold, miserable, foggy, raining and cold. I went to the top (there is a kind of cairn marking it) but I didn’t take my camera because it would have been either drowned or blown away.
This is my twenty-ninth square for Becky’s April Square Challenge.
