August 2009 and April 2017
Yes, I know you can find a nice landscape and nice trails in the woods pretty much anywhere you go (except for midtown Manhattan), but for some reason, I happened to come by quite an abundance of amazing ones during my time in Germany. I'm not exactly sure what it was, maybe the lush forests, maybe the look of the small towns scattered in the valleys between the hills, or maybe just the result of overall environmental preservation. Either way, any of the times I went on a run or walk, I felt like continuing forever as I passed scenic view after scenic view. It's hard to find the right words to describe it, but I'll just let the pictures do the talking. I've added a few here as a preview, but more will soon be in the art and photos section.
