Black Forest, Germany


     During the Summer of 2017, I did a 30 day trek in Europe. I started by flying to Frankfurt, Germany on July 11th, and visiting with my niece, MaLaan and family. From there I rented a car and traveled through the Black Forest National Park towards Switzerland.

     I started the day by driving to Baden-Baden and visiting the world famous Roman Spas, (pictured below).

     The picture below, is of the Black Forest. Covering the southwest corner of Germany, the magical forest with its jagged hills, clear lakes, and deep valleys cast a spell on all who come here.

     The Black Forest is not really black, but deep evergreen—mostly Norway spruce, a tall straight tree ideal for timber.
