Living in Germany...hiking a mountain with Brad and Jenny

Brad, Jenny (JR's teammate and wife), JR and I hiking up to the Baumgartenschneid Mountain:

After about half an hour of going through the forest: An opening and a restaurant. But it is too early for us to eat and drink.

The leaves made everything look so pretty and it smelled really good in the forest.

On top of the mountain. Every mountain has a Gipfelkreuz, a cross to show you that you have reached the highest point.

The view from the top of the mountains. The really big mountains are further into the Alps. The view was great.

Lake Tegernsee, this is towards Munich.

Crazy how this church was built onto a rock years ago!!! MANY YEARS!!!
The hike was great and luckily not too long. If you don't hike that much in the mountains, it is better to start out slow.

Living in Germany

So I have been living in Germany for about 2 months now. I already had some visitors (Brad and Jenny-JR's teammate and his wife) and it was great. Off course JR is here too. We have had a lot of luck with the weather. It snowed early September, but now it is foggy in the morning, and sunny in the afternoon but still pretty cold.

This is Lake Tegernsee, where I currently live.

The Alps, just across the border to Austria.

Bavarians drink a LOT of beer here (even in the morning, a Bavarian breakfast consits of Beer, Sausages and Prezels). When you look at a menu, you see this:
Water 2 Euros
Applejuice 2 Euros
Beer 1,80 Euros

FUNNY!!! And you see a ton of different kinds of sausage!!! :-)

More updates and stories about living in the Alps will follow.
