After a Weekend at home, I really had to go outside for a bit after Work today. And after some deliberation, I decided to go for a short Hike near St. Andreasberg in the Harz. When I arrived at the Parking Lot at the Trail, there were a few Cars already there. But luckily, I… Continue reading Hiking in the Snow.
After not having used it for a while, I decided to take my GoPro out on my Walk today. After Work, I drove up into the Harz, towards Dammhaus, to get a little bit of Fresh Air. Arriving there, I put on my Chesty, mounted the GoPro and hit record. I then made my Way… Continue reading Taking my GoPro on a Walk.
Trees are awesome. They take CO2 and, in through Photosynthesis turn it into Oxygen and Wood. They do look really cool as well. Especially in Areas where there are a lot of Needle Trees like Pines in an Area. Like in the Harz. And I am not talking of Wooded Mountainsides shot from afar. That… Continue reading Trees & Sunlight.
Today was a beautiful day. And since my Gym has closed, I decided to go out on a little Hike in the Harz. I ended up going to the Jägersbleeker Teich, because of the local Stempelstelle, numbered 127 in the Wandernadel System. It was good getting out for a short time after spending all weekend… Continue reading Getting another Stamp.
I have been at the Prinzenteich before, but back then it was full of Algae. And it smelled really bad. So, after finishing up at work, I decided to there again. And this times, it was actually quite nice. This time, I was lucky to be able to drive to the Prinzenteich Parking Lot, because… Continue reading Back in the Woods.

We quickly decided on the Verlobungsinsel, numbered 116, located in the Okertal between Romkerhall and… Continue reading The Verlobungsinsel [HWN 116]
Today after Work I had to pick something up at University in Clausthal. On the way there, I discovered that there was a beautiful layer of white, almost pristine Snow. And so I did what I had to do and stopped by the Road to take some Pictures. The Snow just looked to pretty to… Continue reading And then there was Snow.
Today, just before my Economics Exam, I just had to step out for a few minutes. I decided to go down to the Hasenbacher Teich near Buntenbock. I chose that Place mostly because there was some snow. And I thought it would make some nice Pictures, which it did. But because the Snow was quite… Continue reading Snow & the Teich.
Just to the South of Osterode lie some white Cliffs. They are actually quite beautiful to look at. Those Cliffs are an outcrop of Anhydride and Gypsum, both of which are also mined in the Area. An Excavator on the Cliffs. Back in the Day, the Gypsum Mines were way more economically significant than they… Continue reading The Cliffs of Osterode.
Just east of Osterode, sitting in a Harz Valley, sits the Sösetalsperre. I never really thought much of it, as it was always there. Today, after taking a Chemistry Exam, I decided to find out a little more about the local Talsperre. The Dam of the Sösetalsperre is largely made of Earth and Gravel. It… Continue reading The oldest Talsperre in the Harz
