You may recall from my last post that we set out for Garmisch knowing nothing about the town except that it fit our geographical requirements (that's just the lazy way we roll!) so it was a great surprise to find out how quaint and lovely it is. Surrounded by mountains, it's a hot spot for skiers but we're a little early in the season for that. There are trails leading up into the Alps which begin at a multiple points from the center of the town so today we packed sandwiches and headed up. The trail was pretty steep in parts and we are a little out of shape but if all those elder Germans with their fancy trekking poles could do it, then so could we. Ultimately we only lasted a couple hours but considering Vaughn was crying, "The air is getting thin!" 20 minutes into the hike, I feel pretty good about it. Plus, we did reach a nice vista from which to enjoy a PB&J.
