After a few days at home, I started for the next leg of the Neckarsteig. Actually, the next two legs. So I got onto the train to Neckarsteinach very early, and arrived there just before sunrise.
Climbing the Hinterburg ruins.
So far, a nice view on a rather dull day.
But then, the sun came up! For the only time that day, but those few minutes were magical!
Back en route, into the woods.
Arriving at Hirschhorn.
Having a break, 3 hours and 16 kilometres in. With cake and ginger tea.
Arriving at Eberbach.
And going back to Hirschhorn along the Neckar.
Back at the train station in Hirschhorn I had reached 43 kilometres. Never before did I walk this far within a day, and this time with less pain.
Going back home, sweaty and tired.
