I’ve been in the Black Forest of Germany for a few days now, and oh, how I love it!
I’m staying with dear friends in the mountain village of Bühlertal, about thirty minutes from Baden-Baden.
Tomorrow I will show you this beautiful village with its charming gardens, fruit trees, and bright red roofs, but today I will share a few photos of the gorgeous countryside around here.
On a drive home from Baden-Baden, my friends pulled off the road to a rest stop to show me this stunning view. I love the brilliant green meadow across the way and the wisps of mist just beginning to creep in as evening falls.
Isn’t this a lovely rest stop? I’d be delighted to pull off mid-trip for a stroll and picnic lunch here. The log cabin makes me smile. It would be so welcoming on a long road trip along winding mountain roads.
If I lived here I’d simply have to stop and pick armfuls of these wildflowers and brightly colored leaves to bring home with me. And I’d definitely be tempted to ditch the car for a bit and go for a ramble down that little path to see where it leads.
What is your ideal rest stop?
