Campervan Adventures in Bavaria: Partnachklamm

I was super excited for Partnachklam after hiking Höllentalklamm a few days prior and absolutely loving it. Plus this gorge is advertised everywhere and is one of the things to do in the area. The day was a bit overcast and drizzly, but since we were just hiking in a gorge and would get wet anyways it didn't matter. Some sheeps on the way to the entrance.

There on the left is the path to the entrance...pretty flat

We fully geared up with raincoat, pants, and pack covers before heading in

This trail was not as wet as the other one as most of the water was falling off the overhangs not onto the actual trail

It was another beautiful gorge hike, but a lot busier which makes sense. It is so easy to get to and so much more accessible. I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't that wet! Also interesting that the tunnels had no lights in them and some were super dark!

After leaving the gorge we walked a bit farther than took a trail that would loop around back to the start, but first climbed up a bit to get to the top of the gorge. I think there are actually 2 ways to loop around, a trail to the left right when you get out of the gorge and a trail farther up to the right. We took the one farther up. 

These last 2 photos don't look very impressive, but there was a bridge over the gorge where you could look down on it and it was really cool. The highlight of the hike for me.

We stopped just outside the entrance to eat lunch and take off some of the rain gear (it was still sprinkling so the coat stayed on). I planned this trip then was talking with my two girlfriends here about when we were going and it ended up they each had planned vacation for the same time! Without talking to each other about it! Which was super odd, but oh well. My one friend said they were going to southern Germany and Austria and I was all we are going to southern Germany! But we didn't talk about where specifically we were going. Then when we were in Königsee I found out she was there too! And in this area at the same time as well! Well...we were hiking back to the car and Raymond said look who is coming this way. It was my friend!! So crazy that we actually ran into her on vacation that we independently planned and not only did our itineraries match up a lot, we actually ran into her and her family on our vacation! So crazy!

The parking for the gorge was by this ski jump - where Eddie the Eagle trained for the Olympics!

It was another shorter day as after our morning hike we headed back to the campsite and read all afternoon. And the weather at the campsite was once again much nicer than at the trail. It was only 13 km/8 miles walked according to my Fitbit.

Stupid Libraries.

So I only have six minutes left and just wasted a few seconds letting you know, but I need some assistance in getting things off our iPod onto the net. In the last town we were in, I came so close to getting it up only to be thwarted by the only damn cd -burner in the shop being broken. This is the problem: my iPod is mac formatted - the folks at Apple thought it would be hilarious to not include some sort of compatibility between windows and mac versions of iTunes to read the voice memos you record from any computer. If your iPod formatted on a mac (I believe it's HSF +), windows iTunes will tell you to reformat the buggar . And get this, the iPod records voice memos in old school PC style wav files. What the hell. Anyway, I can't test or install things on this library computer, but if someone checking the blog who is tech savvy could find a program to retrieve data from a mac formatted iPod from a windows machine - a program that doesn't use a god damn install

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g

Paris here we come!

So not much to update since the last time. I'm trying to think what we even did the past two weeks. Well last weekend was roller derby nationals in Atlanta, GA and is the first time we haven't gone to nationals in...4 years! We have gone the past 4 years so it was a little sad not to be there. However they do stream it live for a small fee so we did that so last weekend lots of roller derby was watched! Luckily it was on the east coast so it was only 6 hours difference so we didn't stay up too too late (Sat I think we got to bed at like 3am) and we got to watch Gotham win again! It was fun watching from the couch, but I much prefer to be there. I mean when I would be yelling at the TV and clapping and cheering when something good happened and it is just not the same when it is just me doing that. The claps echo in the room...Next year is going to be in Milwaukee which I don't really know anything about, but apparently they have a lot of vegan food. We shall see if we ma
