Here is a picture from a hike we took on Sunday. These are the hills just overlooking Kandern.
Side note: We really are in a very rural area here. We saw a man drive to the grocery store on his tractor. A tractor. I wish we had a picture of this German farmer, driving away in his tractor with a big, warm pretzel.
Another sure sign of autumn is the growing number of pumpkin stands along the roads. We stopped at this stand to buy some gourds...We made our purchase from a very friendly old man, all in German. He even threw in an extra gourd, "just for me" he said. We have a little display of gourds at our door, just like all the Germans. I figure if summer isn't going to come back, I might as well celebrate fall!
