(Ben) ...From the Odenwald to the Central Schwarzwald area is a drive that would normally take about three hours. That's assuming that the Autobahn is free of Stau and construction projects - which many know is seldom the situation. But with several reststops along the way it becomes an easy trip and we arrive in the Simonswald valley shortly after noon.

 

I love farms that sit high on a hillside with a balcony that overlooks a valley of lush green meadows. Our accommodations for the next four days were absolutely perfect. A large bedroom with a couch, flat screen satellite TV, private balcony, nice size kitchen, bathtub, shower, separate toilet, all inclusive. Also included was an excellent breakfast buffet with Eggs, Brotchen, homemade jams and jellies, and your normal assortment of meats and cheeses.

 

Off the Simonswaldtal main road (L173) turn towards Griesbach. From the valley floor the road slowly becomes a winding one-lane mountain path that had my Frau praying a lot. She ended up playing chicken with several local residents - knowing they were more familiar with the road so relied on them to do any backing up required. Dee Dee loves driving those types of roads - she just hates meeting anyone on them... :)

Dee Dee has never met a horse or cow she didn't like...

Frau Ruth was an awesome hostess.

From Simonswald we made several daytrips to Titisee, Triberg, Furtwangen, Hexenloch, Emmendingen, Waldkirch...
