We went with a hiking group last weekend. We always walk alone otherwise, but were invited by a friend to join in. 20 people in the big forest. All vaccinated except me. A great day.
Do you see the eaten cones on the stump? Never in my life I have seen this many! We saw one every 5th meter. The forest must be a complete mice den…but, we did not spot a single mouse scuttling around.

What a beautiful place for a hike! I hope your foot wasn’t too sore afterwards – six hours is quite a walk, more than I could manage unfortunately!
Well, I now know my limits!
Beautiful hike in the forest. We’ve tried that in the Minnesota woods, chased out by hordes of mosquitoes. We now have a can of repellent in the trunk of our car in case we stumble upon the desire to hike in the woods.
Haha, well, no mosquitos in this cold weather…
I love seeing your forest hikes! So much beauty!
Beth – I am glad to walk with you!
Great shot, nice walk and I loved to read the story.
I hope your foot gets better soon.
Have a nice weekend,
Thank you, Rudi – glad you came along! My foot was OK the day after. But now I know this was a bit too long a hike…
Thanks for brining us along on this hike.
I like the photo of the vertical tree trunks with the white-haired lady. Perfect shot!
Thank you – yes, I loved her white hair and the grey tree trunks.
A rather long hike but it looks beautiful. So glad you get out and spend time with other people.
Yes, outdoors it is OK here.
What a wonderful outing this was, Ann-Christine! Thanks for taking us along.
Happy you liked the hike – it was just great!
Marvelous photos! Here we have the cones eaten by squirrels.
They eat them here too, but the remnants look different, that’s how I know!
I love how different your forests are. I would love to walk there. I am glad you did for us and endured a painful foot as well. Tell Bo I will join in sleeping under the stars 🙂 🙂
Haha, I will tell him!
What a wonderful landscape!
It was indeed!
Love those slender, tall tree trunks! And the miss. A pretty post today!!
Thank you very much!
Thanks for taking us on your hike Ann Christine. The forest was beautiful. I hope your feet recovered fast! Six hours, yikes!
Glad you liked the tour, Anne! My foot was OK the day after. Had to rest it though, no such long walks in a couple of days…16 kilometers seems to be my limit nowadays.
Ohh, extremely well done for walking so long. It is just divine, especially the mossy rocks.
Glad you can see its divinity, Manja ;-D And i now know my current limit is 16 kilometers a day…
No, you told me you would limit it to 10k to be kind to your foot, A C…or had you forgotten???
……it felt OK until 2 km left.!
Don’t overdo it, your foot will thank you
I am sure…I know my limit now…
A grandday out….. and yep, spring is very different this year. The Chestnut are well out, the Beech just buds, the Oak still asleep. No doubt it will all catch up on itself probably in a hurry 😃
True – we’ve had two rainy days and are expecting two more. Then – 20 degrees C! The hurry will start on the first warm day!
Looks like a grand day out A-C. Your forests are enchanting. I sometimes think about joining a walking group, for the social aspect, but then I do like to go at my own pace and stop to photograph things and I am sure I would be irritated by being ‘moved along’ and I am sure I would irritate others, so probably best to walk alone.
You made me smile, Jude! That could be my own arguments as well… Always the last one who everybody will have to wait for… This was such a long hike and in an area I have never been before. So I thought it was a good idea with a guide. And a group I had never met either – only the guide and my friend who invited me. And 16 kilometers I know now, is my limit. Mostly because of the foot…but it might have helped with a warmer day and the beeches green!
I have issues with my feet , well the left one in particular, so I have to be careful not to stand / walk for too long. So annoying!
Ah, sorry, and I know how sad it is. My doctor told me to use the bike instead – not my thing. I have kept walking and walk much every day with the dogs, but this was a bit too much. Interesting our foot issues are in the same foot.
The flat-rock or bare patch scattered with pine cone seeds are signs of chipmunks dining, to me. But I don’t know if you know chipmunks?
Oh, I know them, but we don’t have them. These should be mice, some say it might be squirrels too.
