Sept Adventures 2023: Teufelsmauer Timmenrode Hike

Today we hiked part of the Teufelsmauer from Timmenrode

This was so much fun! All the rocks!

The trail starts as a trail

It was interesting as the rocks are just in the middle of this farmland. 

After a while the trail turns into climbing on the rocks! You could also take a lower route and keep to a trail, but the climbing all over was so much fun!

At the end of the trail by Blankenburg was this rock you could climb on top of 

But you had to climb up the steep rocks!

After a short break here it was time to head back towards Timmenrode along a different path

Much more forested

But still rocky

We were walking along and all of a sudden there was this tiny staircase in the ground on the edge of the trail

That lead to this little foxhole! It was pretty cool, just a small room, but would be good if you needed shelter 

After our hike we headed back to Thale and decided to wander a bit more around town

We had decided that we were going to go back to Treseburg for dinner where we had a break the day prior as they had lots of options. Along the way was the Rossetrappe viewpoint on the opposite side of the valley than we had hiked so we thought why not stop for a quick peak?

A highlight is this horseshoe print left by a fleeing princess who had to jump across the gorge to escape the guy who wanted to force her to marry him. This was apparently made when the horse landed

This was really gorgeous and I was glad we stopped. 


Back at Zur Luppbode for dinner of burgers which were super tasty (but no photos!) This place was a great find and they had a lot of vegan options, but I hadn't see anything about it in my searches for food in the area. 

After dinner we decided to go back to the Rossetrappe viewpoint to see the sunset. When we were there earlier it looked like the perfect spot to watch from as the sun would set almost directly across from the viewpoint

Such a fun day! All the hiking and all the views!

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Ferry home - Tórshavn

The boat home was just as smooth and uneventful as the ride to Iceland. We left Iceland at 8pm Wed, Thurs at 3pm we arrive in Tórshavn and had a few hours to wander around, then back to the boat for the night, Friday was at sea, and Saturday we arrived in Hirtshals at 11am. 

Campervan Adventures in Iceland: Final Thoughts

That is it for our Iceland adventures! I wanted to post one last wrap up just to say a few things I didn't put elsewhere, or organize my overall thoughts in one place. 

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
