Not a high mountain but definitely not a hill as it is well over the 1000 foot mark, provided that is really the magical threshold which turns a (mole)hill into a mountain. It is called Melibokus and it is the highest mountain of the Odenwald on the side where it drops off to the Upper Rhine Valley in Central Germany. The climb from the town of Zwingenberg at its foot to its peak of 517 metres plus the elevation of the lookout tower and a US Army radio mast is quite steep and although no alpine feat also not for those faint of heart and sore of foot.
I chose this photo for the Friendly Friday Challenge where Amanda has asked for Mountain tops
because I passed the location today and used the camera of my new phone for the first time. The photos are definitely a lot better than what my previous phone could do but I already know that I won’t take pictures with it often. I use my phone for a lot but it just doesn’t feel right for my hands and fingers when I take snaps.
Anyway, here is a long shot from close to the autobahn looking towards the Melibokus. I even managed to include my shadow – not by design.
