Sept Adventures 2023: Hiking around Wernigerode

Today we got up and got going to hike up to the Wernigerode Castle 









View from the castle






Then we wandered over to a lookout tower on the Fairy Tale trail



Rapunzel's Tower

Views from the top






We wandered back to town on most of the fairy tale trail which was fun


Then relaxed with a drink in the main square

And another quick wander around town







When we were having a drink at Weißer Hirsch Hotel in the main square we spied on the food options and decided to come back for dinner. We had the cauliflower soup with edamame, and the tomato zucchini risotto with lemon pepper tofu, grilled eggplant and balsamic. This was much better than the night prior, but was still lacking seasoning. Raymond thought it might be because we were definitely on the younger side for people we saw wandering around here and maybe they cater to an older crowd. 

But the views were great! And a great way to end our day of wandering

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
