We hiked up to the Altschlossfelsen - which would translate into "old castle rock".
It is a very impressive rock formation, a series of sandstone mushrooms, which are connected at their
"caps" and which form a ridge of more than one kilometer. It is not a single ridge but rather a ridge
with several side ridges, all colored brightly red. Erosion has left the caps almost unimpaired while
the stems have been thoroughly eaten away. It is hidden deeply inside the forest almost directly on
the German / French border. The area is about 50 miles down the road from our home.
