Having spent a week on my mountain, it was time to do some longer and steeper walks again so it was back to Oberstdorf but this time avoiding waterfalls!

It's happy because that means that I don't have to camp all the time--but it's sad because I wish I had figured this out sooner--maybe I woud've picked guesthouse over camping the last couple of nights! I decide to do ...
