It isn’t that I actually have a long story to tell, but the gazillion photos I took on our trip on Pentecost could only be reduced to a still staggering number to go into this post.
So prepare for a multi-multi-part photo post that will hopefully enthral you as much as the place we went to enthrals me.

Also, there will be a humourous intro photo, a mysterious discovery in the woods and animals.

Thrills galore!!!!!

My Dutch friend M. visited me on the Pentecost weekend, and on Sunday we drove over to the Externsteine which I already mentioned once in the distant past.

Being from the flat, flat Netherlands, M. was already feeling like he was in a foreign country once we had reached the outskirts of the Teutoburg Forest mountain range. ;)

Then we parked, got out, shivered in the unforecast cold (evil weather people), took a look at the car we had parked beside and wondered: are there really classes in that?!?

A disturbing thought…

Shaking our heads in confusion, we started walking towards the stones.

Here’s one of the early glimpses:

stones front
“main” stones as seen from the front

And for a easier reference:

legally climbable stones front - numbered

Just throwing a few more photos at you without any real commentary.
Somehow I have way too many photos/posts queued up at the moment.

(And, no, I have not forgotten about that photo you were not allowed to see cos I got another almanach post planned for it either, sis.
I am just afraid the post will probably be a real anticlimax after that long wait; lol, sorry.)
