A new Dam

The Sösetalsperre here in Osterode was the first modern Talsperre in the Harz, being finished all the Way back in 1931. It, like most Talsperren here in the Harz, also has a Vorsperre to absorb uniquely high Waters, and a Stilling Basin to regulate outflow from from the Talsperre. The Söse below the Talsperre.

Almost getting that Stempel

A while ago, I went to the Sösetalsperre to get a Sonderstempel there. Back then, I was thwarted by some Forestry Operations. So I decided to try again this Afternoon.

Things did not turn out as planned.… Continue reading Not getting a Stempel

One Time, I actually walked the first Stage of the Hexenstieg in Reverse from Buntenbock to Osterode with my… Continue reading The Hexenstieg

Snowy Streets.

Today, we had a lot of Snowfall here in Osterode. And that meant that I had to shovel my Part of the Sidewalk. I did not like that, because my Shovel always snagged on the Cobblestone, but it had to be done. Afterwards, I wanted to go around a little bit and Explore in the… Continue reading Snowy Streets.
